How we define ourselves is at the heart of Ethnic, Gender and Transborder Studies. EGTS is about analyzing the numerous, complex ways our identities intersect. It’s about appreciating local and global perspectives, and how history impacts the present.

Through EGTS, you will gain an interdisciplinary perspective of the histories, cultures, socio-economic concerns, politics, and identities of people of color and people of multiple genders and sexualities on their own terms. Explore social movements, diasporas, and achievements of historically marginalized peoples in the U.S.

Ethnic, Gender and Transborder Studies (EGTS) offers courses in:

  • African American Studies (AFA)
  • American Indian Studies (AIS)
  • Gender & Women’s Studies (GWS)
  • Global Studies (GLS)
  • Mexican American Studies (MAS)
  • Sociology

You are a good fit for EGTS if you like to analyze ideas for their strengths and weaknesses, communicate persuasively, and are ready to hear powerful stories and ask hard questions whose answers will result in a greater appreciation of all people.
