Catalog Addenda

Notice:  For Associate Degrees, an Ethnic Studies Requirement replaces the Multicultural Requirement.  Refer to pages 60-61.

Ethnic Studies is the interdisciplinary study of race and ethnicity, as understood through the perspectives of major underrepresented racial and Indigenous groups in the United States. Students will draw upon many disciplines and areas of thought to comprehend the sociocultural, intellectual, and historical experiences that inform the construction of racial, gender, and cultural identities. Students will question the origin and continuity of race and racism, understand systems of power and domination, activism, and resistance from Black, Indigenous, Mexican/Latinx, and Asian communities, and perhaps discover a personal area of research and action.

A minimum of three semester units - one course required from the following list:

  • Africana Studies:  AS 101+(F21), AS 102+(F21);
  • American Indian Studies: AIS 100+(F21), AIS 101+(F21), AIS 102+(F21), AIS 125+(F21);
  • Chicano Studies: CS 100+(F21), CS 101+(F21), CS 102+(F21), CS 140+(F21)
