Experiential Learning

Students in the Department of Indigenous, Race, and Ethnic Studies learn about historical and contemporary manifestations of white supremacy and investigate how systems of domination create racial subjects. By getting involved in internships, research, study abroad, and student groups, students gain new perspectives into racial, ethnic, and political dimensions of all spheres of society.
