Ethnic Studies (EST)

Advisor: Marcela Ochoa-Shivapour

The Ethnic Studies Program and the courses that make up its major address questions of ethnic
identity and relations among ethnic groups and is supervised by a faculty committee composed
of the course instructors.

In order to receive Ethnic Studies credit a course must devote a significant portion of its content
to the study of subordinate racial or ethnic groups, where a subordinate group is understood as
one whose members are, or have historically been, disadvantaged and subjected to unequal
treatment by the dominant group in a society, the latter understood as a group whose members
have superior access to or control over a society's economic, political, or social power. Specific
courses may emphasize the cultural practices of one or more racial or ethnic groups or the
interrelationships between subordinate and dominant racial or ethnic groups.

Ethnic Studies faculty members: Craig Allin, Carol Enns, Christina Penn-Goetsch, Marcela
Ochoa-Shivapour, Mary Olson, Catherine Stewart, Johanna Schuster-Craig
