The minor in Race and Ethnicity Studies is an interdisciplinary program in which students critically examine the complexity and constructions of race and ethnicity in different socio-historical and cultural contexts. The program at UE includes experiential education in which fieldwork, an internship, or research involving racial/ethnic issues is supported by critical analysis.

Students complete a common core and work with an advisor to select from a range of elective courses which include options in the humanities, social sciences, education, and public health.

The minor prepares students from a wide variety of majors to engage an increasingly diverse world as informed, ethical citizens.
