Program Overview

Born out of the late-1960s student protests led by the Black Student Union and Third World Liberation Front at San Francisco State University, Ethnic Studies is overtly and proudly a political and intellectual project that envisions and enacts paths to self-determination by communities of color. Ethnic Studies at CSUSB invites students who are inspired to take on the critical study of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, disability and citizenship to examine all systems and structures of oppression. Our BA consists of distinct theoretical and methodological approaches that have shaped the field of Ethnic Studies including Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, Queer of Color Critique, Settler Colonialism and Transnational Feminisms. Students who major in Ethnic Studies will analyze the power dynamics at play in structuring white supremacy, heteropatriarchy and class oppression through the centering of historically racialized groups in the United States.

Ethnic Studies at CSUSB is comprised of educators, students and staff who are dedicated to creating supportive and nurturing academic environments for all majors and minors. By majoring in Ethnic Studies, students are prepared for a range of opportunities at CSUSB, including interdisciplinary and collaborative research, study abroad and internships on campus and in our surrounding communities. Moreover, students will be prepared to pursue a wide variety of fields after graduation, including organizing and activism, public policy, medicine, social work, secondary and college-level educational work, law and government. Majors are also well-situated for graduate studies in a number of disciplines in the social sciences and humanities.
