Canadian Ethnic and Racial Studies
The Minor Concentration in Canadian Ethnic and Racial Studies offers to undergraduate students a structured framework in which to appreciate the range of social scientific approaches to the study of ethnic diversity in Canada. The terms “ethnic” and “racial” are used in a very broad sense, to include the full spectrum of ethnic, cultural, religious, aboriginal, linguistic, and racial groups in Canada.
Apart from the intrinsic interest and importance of the subject, the concentration may be of practical use. Students pursuing further graduate and professional training or employment in a variety of areas will find familiarity with issues relating to cultural diversity to be an asset. These include the fields of health, social services, education, law, law enforcement, human resources and personnel; occupations in government agencies, in ethnocultural and other non-governmental organizations; and graduate work in all the social sciences.
