Race and Culture Studies Minor

Minor in Race and Culture Studies (18 CREDITS)

The mission of the academic minor in the Study of Race and Culture is to contribute to the overall mission of Eastern Washington University "to prepare broadly educated, technologically proficient, and highly productive citizens to obtain meaningful career, to enjoy enriched lives, and to make contributions to a culturally diverse society." RCST provides Eastern Washington University students a comprehensive interdisciplinary curriculum that contributes to their understanding and appreciation of the experiences, concerns and perspectives of the three major historically marginalized populations, (African Americans, Chicanos/Latinos and Native Americans) in the United States.

RCST minors study the history, culture, social-economics and political realities of these communities. More specifically, RCST minors gain insights about international connections relevant to these groups as well as participate in research and community based study to augment classroom learning.
