Student Learning Outcomes
- Develop and demonstrate the acquisition of critical frameworks for understanding historical, contemporary and intersectional perspectives on race, racism, ethnicity in an U.S. and/or a transnational perspective.
- Demonstrate the ability to analyze how “race,” “ethnicity,” and/or indigeneity are historically and culturally specific (dependent on time and place); relational (not formed in isolation); and intersectional (informed by other social formations such as class, gender, sexuality, etc.).
- Explore how society can be centrally constituted by racial, ethnic, and indigenous formations in global and historical contexts, in preparation for a diverse society and international world.
- Demonstrate the ability to identify the perspectives, values, and claims made in primary cultural texts, and evaluate the secondary/scholarly analyses of those sources based on cultural, literary, linguistic, historical, artistic, and/or environmental analyses, and communicate the findings effectively in written and oral formats.
- Demonstrate an understanding of and respect for diverse values and perspectives surrounding race and ethnicity along with a familiarity of various interdisciplinary methods applied to conducting research and analysis.
- Develop lines of inquiry around personal and auto-ethnographic research that leads to understanding one’s own race and ethnicity and critiquing the broader relationships between self, nation and the globe.
- Effectively articulate in oral and written form complex ideas about knowledge, power, and society.
- Demonstrate the development of cultural competencies for communicating with people of different cultural and racial backgrounds. Apply interdisciplinary methods and theories of critical race and ethnic studies through work in areas such as performance, art, direct service, internships, and study abroad.
