  • American Multicultural Studies

    The American Multicultural Studies Department is dedicated to helping students examine the characteristics and relationships of the diverse cultures that have helped shape our nation. Through an interdisciplinary curriculum, students learn about the status, concerns, achievements, representations and experiences of African Americans, Native American Indians, Chicanos/Latinos and Asian Americans.

    Courses are taught by dedicated faculty members whose experience includes work for the Smithsonian Institution and National Endowment for the Humanities; Bush, MacArthur, Ford and National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships; and extensive community involvement. Students develop broader world perspectives and are able to identify, analyze and discuss complex issues and policies in American society from critical interdisciplinary, comparative and multicultural perspectives. Graduates of the program are equipped to work toward achieving a more just society and excel in a variety of careers within our multicultural world.
