The Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity (CSCRE) delivers a curriculum focused primarily on African-, Latino/a-, Asian-, and Native-American (ALANA) people in the United States, who are usually marginalized, under-represented and/ or misrepresented in the normative curriculum. CSCRE also fosters critical dialogues on race through its Discussion Series which brings several speakers, artists, and performers to Ithaca each year. This dual focus is meant to help students develop a comprehensive understanding of the multiracial and polycultural world in which we live.

CSCRE faculty are experts on the diversity, complexity, and contradictions of the American ethnic experience.

CSCRE Minors

The Center's minors in African Diaspora, Asian American, Latino/a, and Native American Studies cover a broad range of subjects, including identity formation, cultural and historical representations and struggles, public policy, intersections of race and colonialism, social justice and racial redress. Where possible, courses rely on a comparative and historical approach and combine epistemological /theoretical concerns with an analysis of “real-life” problems so as to give students a contextual understanding of the issues they are studying.

Minors are required to take six courses (*18 credit hours), two from Conceptual Frameworks and one each from the remaining four categories: Comparative and International, Culture and History, Policy and Praxis, and Power and Liberation.
