Ethnic Studies Interdisciplinary Minor

The Ethnic Studies interdisciplinary minor at Davidson provides you with an understanding of the forces that have made African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans and Native Americans integral and yet distinct groups in American society.

This interdisciplinary course of study, offered by departments in the humanities and social sciences, introduces the analytical skills that are required for you to understand the cultural, economic, and political factors, both historical and modern, that have shaped these ethnic groups.

By examining these communities, you'll gain a deeper understanding of the legacy and nuance of racism in the United States, develop knowledge of existing and emerging minority U.S. populations, communicate effectively across cultural differences and learn to think critically about the struggles of living and participating in a multicultural democracy.
