Santa Clara University

Ethnic Studies Program

Director's Welcome

Welcome to the Ethnic Studies Program at Santa Clara University. The Ethnic Studies Program offers interdisciplinary courses in the study of race and ethnicity, and coordinates courses in race and ethnic studies throughout the University. The Program focuses on the study of African Americans, Asian/Pacific Islander Americans, Chicanos/Latinos, and Native Americans and their roles in the development of the United States. This emphasis provides an opportunity for all students to learn about racial and ethnic minority communities, thus leading to a deeper and nuanced understanding of United States history and society. The program's dedicated faculty members are recognized by students and other faculty for their excellence in teaching, scholarship, service, and advising.

I encourage you to learn more about Ethnic Studies by taking one of our courses, enrolling in our companion major and minor, or simply coming by our new office located in St. Joseph's Hall. I look forward to meeting you and having the opportunity to tell you more about Santa Clara University's Ethnic Studies Program.

In Solidarity,
Ramón Chacón
