The Gender, Race, and Identity Program
The Gender, Race, and Identity Program (GRI) located within the College of Liberal Arts, brings together the undergraduate major and minor in Women’s Studies, the M.A. in Gender, Race, and Identity, the Graduate Certificate in Gender, Race, and Identity, and the minors in Ethnic Studies (ETS), Holocaust, Genocide, and Peace Studies (HGPS), and Religious Studies (RST) to provide an academically effective and comprehensive program for diversity.
The academic majors and minors integrated within Gender, Race, and Identity share a focus on people at the margins and analyze the experience of difference and oppression in its various forms on individuals and societies. Because the academic mission and curricular requirements, philosophies, and historical and social perspectives of the programs included in GRI draw from the same impulse, their incorporation into a shared program provides an academically sound and philosophically coherent mission.
Detailed descriptions of the programs housed within GRI are included in the alphabetical listing in the College of Liberal Arts programs.
