The School of Education and Department of Ethnic Studies have partnered to support the 4+1 degree program that reflects each unit’s commitment to educational opportunity, diversity, and engaged scholarship examining how race and the interrelated categories of ethnicity, disabilities, language, gender, class, and sexuality impact the lives of people locally and globally. We invite highly-focused Ethnic Studies students who are interested in applying their critical thinking skills and dedication to social justice and transformative careers in education.

Degrees Conferred

This highly structured program results in students earning a BA in Ethnic Studies and an MA in Education in five years of study. Students interested in this option should apply for admission early in their undergraduate career in order to ensure that they can fulfill all of its requirements.
