New Major in Race and Ethnicity Studies to be Offered
A new major in Race and Ethnicity Studies (REST), has been announced for fall 2010.
The REST major will be an interdisciplinary program devoted to the critical examination of race and ethnicity, complementing Salem's dedication to global awareness and inquiry. There are three core courses and eight elective courses to choose from, including critical issues in the history of race and ethnicity, American women's history, globalization and global inequities and modern writings from women of the non-Western world.
Opportunities for internships and projects with area organizations and educational institutions would be many and varied, according to the Salem faculty members who designed the major.
Detailed info on REST will be available when the academic catalog is updated online later this summer.
