Ethnic and Gender Studies


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Curriculum

The ethnic and gender studies program addresses problems and issues that are as old as human culture. This multidisciplinary minor explores how societies throughout history have thought about and reacted to differences in race and ethnicity, gender and sexuality. These courses attend to the roles and experiences of women and minorities in American culture and abroad. More fundamentally, though, they ask us to reflect upon and rethink our own current understanding of these powerful and political categories.

Overall, the ethnic and gender studies minor aims at developing sensitivity to differences among people, while maintaining common values and acknowledging the need to work collectively. The perspectives encouraged by this program, along with the analytical skills it develops, help to prepare students for post-graduate study in law, the social sciences, and literature, as well as careers in business and education.

Professors: Meg Albrinck, Don Francis, Alan Mock, Peter Sattler, and Elizabeth Stroot
Associate Professors: April Arvan, Lucretia Crawford, Rick Dodgson, Krista Feinberg, and Christopher D. Moore
