A minor is an optional component of a student’s degree that will be reflected on the student’s transcript. Minors are an excellent way for students to customize their learning experience and craft a degree program that is uniquely theirs. Students can even earn multiple minors to supplement a bachelor's degree. For example, students pursuing a degree in interpersonal communication might find that a minor in sociology is an excellent pairing, while a student pursuing a degree in public administration might add a minor in sustainability issues to help create a cleaner, greener future. And in some cases, employers offer bonuses or higher salaries to employees who have a foreign language minor.

A Race and Ethnic Studies minor helps students understand how the experiences of racial and ethnic groups in society shapes identities and communities. This minor provides an excellent opportunity for students to gain perspectives that will benefit them and in an increasingly multi-ethnic society. This minor complements a range of degrees. Including law, business, marketing, mass communication, and public administration.



A Race and Ethnic Studies minor complements a range of majors in both the College of Liberal Arts and elsewhere in the university. Some of these are:

  • Education
  • Professional Media
  • Business Law
  • International Relations
  • Political Science
  • Public Administration
