Undergraduate Programs

The School of Cultural and Critical Studies (CCS) is the home to 4 majors and 7 minors.

Core Curriculum

All majors in the School take a rigorous core curriculum in their junior and senior years that consists of a theory course (CCS 3030: Intersections of Gender, Race & Culture), a service-learning course (CCS 3710 Gender, Race & Culture in Community-Based Practice), a research methods course (CCS 4850: Qualitative Research Methods), and a writing course (CCS 4860: Capstone Seminar).

Taking the courses with other majors across CCS helps students develop a stronger sense of community and interdisciplinary connection. CCS minors are welcome to take these courses as well.

Internships

All majors and minors in the School may take up to 4 hours of CCS 4890: Internship.  Although not required, internships are strongly encouraged because they help students better understand career options and make important networking connections.

Events and Community

Students in the School participate in a range of campus events related to their areas of study.  We encourage students to attend a wide arrange of events, participate in related co-curricular activities, and organize events, and engage their fellow students.  Follow us on a variety of Social Media platforms to keep up with community events and engagements!
