Major & Minor Requirements
Applicable for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Race, ethnicity, and migration studies inform disciplines in the sciences, humanities, and social sciences as fundamental categories that produce and inflect knowledge. This interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transnational major prepares students to develop questions, knowledge, and research methodologies that contribute to and challenge a complex, globally connected world.
In the best tradition of the liberal arts at Colorado College, the major bridges the gap between theory and practice and classroom and community. Students explore how race, ethnicity, class, gender, and sexuality are lived realities and shape history, geopolitics, culture, economies, and domestic and international policy. Students majoring in this program gain historical knowledge as well as a critical understanding of historiography and its impact on marginalized populations.
