The Identity Studies minor offers students a dynamic, interdisciplinary, and intersectional curriculum for understanding their own and others' identities. With a focus on the cultural, economic, historical, political, and social factors that produce various contemporary identity formations/classifications, this program allows students from any major to deepen their analysis of the world they live in. The program is structured around a core sequence of three required courses, which introduce students to the theoretical frameworks and practical manifestations of identities in contemporary societies, while the remaining elective courses for the minor facilitate students' specific interests through a choice of courses to complete the Race and Ethnic Studies concentration. Ultimately, students graduating from this program will be able to more critically and effectively engage with their own and others' identities in whatever professional career they pursue.
