Multicultural and Gender Studies (MCGS) is an interdisciplinary program that furthers the University’s goal of providing students with the knowledge and commitment to be socially responsible citizens in a diverse democracy and interconnected world. MCGS students and faculty analyze and challenge interlocking systems of power including racism, classism, and heterosexism. We work together as a diverse community of scholars and activists to critically examine gender, sexuality, race, and ethnicity-primarily within the U.S.-in historical and contemporary cultural contexts.
The American Indian Studies Minor focuses on the history, literature, worldviews, social practices, and legal issues of Indian tribes.
