The Ethnic and Racial Studies program is an interdisciplinary, comparative, and critical study of race, Indigeneity, and ethnicity with a primary focus on the lived experiences, perspectives, theories, and scholarship of and on Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC), Jewish, and Muslim communities within the United States.
