American Ethnic Studies Minor

Off-Campus Study

For the American Ethnic Studies Minor, it is recommended that students take as their last course an independent study project or internship. The independent study should be an in-depth study of an ethnic group (preferably one involving the emphasis chosen by the student). The internship should be one in which students are immersed in a minority culture or in an issue surrounding a “minority experience.” The internship could involve an analysis of the institution where the internship takes place from the perspective of race, class, and/or gender.

Satisfying this recommendation could involve participating in one of the following off-campus programs: The Philadelphia Center, the Chicago semester, or the Borders Studies Program. For more information about these programs, click on the name of the program.
