Overview

The AMCS major encourages students to develop an in-depth understanding of American cultures and ethnicities in the 21st century.  Since it is predicted that the U.S. will be fifty percent (50%) non-white in 2050, our goal is to teach you the analytical tools for understanding the United States as a multiracial, multiethnic, multicultural, and multilingual nation and to help you shape your vision of leadership, civic engagement, and professional development for the future.

We invite you to explore our multifaceted course offerings focused on issues of justice, equity, and equal access to opportunity for all.
