Critical Ethnic Studies (MA)

The Master of Arts in Critical Ethnic Studies will prepare you for advanced analysis of race and ethnicity in an urban and global context.

Using an interdisciplinary perspective to critique global and local power, the program emphasizes social justice and transformation while focusing on U.S. ethno-racial populations through an intersectional, transnational and urban framework.

Program Highlights

You will examine:

  • Systematic marginalization of racial minorities and the global implication of these structures
  • How racialized groups respond to and counter these forces through art, culture, political organization and other forms of social citizenship.

Program Structure

The program consists of a combination of core courses and electives and a final project or internship. The MA thesis may be comparative or focus on a single ethnic or racialized group through the use of intersectional methodologies.‚Äč
