New Degree Program in Critical Race and Ethnic Studies at the University of California, Santa Cruz

The University of California, Santa Cruz has announced a new bachelor’s degree program in critical race and ethnic studies. The interdisciplinary program is designed to help students develop a deep understanding of how race and other modalities of power have structured human life, both in the past and the present.

William Ladusaw, dean of humanities at the university, stated that “the program will build on long traditions of faculty work and student engagement with a critical and inclusive approach to studies of race and ethnicity. The new major will bring a transnational, comparative perspective to interdisciplinary work in these areas.”
