About Ethnic Studies Department at the University of California, Berkeley
The Department of Ethnic Studies at UC Berkeley was one of the first in the nation and has produced some of the most dynamic and influential scholarship in the field. Our 18 ladder-rank faculty members utilize a range of humanities and social science methodologies to analyze the production and effects of race and indigeneity. Some of our faculty focus on one racial group and geographic area while others work comparatively and transnationally. Collectively our research and teaching provide a comparative framework for understanding particular racialized and indigenous groups as well as the relationships among them. The Department offers undergraduate majors and minors in Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies, Chicana/o and Latina/o Studies, Native American Studies, and Comparative Ethnic Studies, as well as a Ph.D. in Ethnic Studies.
