Programme Structure

  • Central to our consideration of race are the ways class, gender, ethnicity, nationality, sexuality, age, and ability shape the human experience. CES courses have an interdisciplinary focus on popular culture, sports, media, and social issues and how they relate to race, class, and gender.
  • CES faculty scholars facilitate understanding of how the social constructions of race impact the social fabric of our historical and contemporary world, and prepare community members to actively and critically engage in their civic responsibilities, especially with respect to social justice.
