Ethnic Studies

This course is a survey of four major ethnic groups (Native American, African American, Chicano/Latino American and Asian American) from the earliest periods of Native American history, through migrations to the Americas, into the present conditions of U.S. society. Special attention is given to the formation and transformation of each ethnic group and their individual and collective roles in the development of the United States.

Additional classes will be available for student that have already completed a previous Ethnic Studies class and wish to take additional ethnic specific courses (Native American, African American, Chicano/Latino, and Asian American). These advanced courses will be offered at sites that generate the most interest.
