The graduate program of ethnicity and culture in our department focuses on studies of ethnicity from various perspectives, including sociology, anthropology, history and literature. By examining the active new roles ethnicity plays in the contemporary social dynamic, our program sets out to explore phenomena in the globally constructed new context. We design the curriculum to train students in both theoretical approaches and research methodologies in order to explore the presentation and representation of ethnicity in the past and the present. The broad spectrum over which the courses cover helps students develop their research interests, and formulate meaningful research questions.
