Ethnic Studies Senior Capstone Papers

 

This Ethnic Studies senior capstone course invites advanced students to examine and apply Ethnic Studies knowledge, critique, and methodology to a community-centered internship. Drawing on interdisciplinary Ethnic Studies, decolonizing, and feminist research methodologies, students select and engage a significant social problem through the internship and write a critical analysis paper. Students explore how communities of color identify and address contemporary social issues; synthesize ETHN frameworks with various disciplines across their Core experiences; and demonstrate analytical, problem-solving, and effective communication skills. They utilize various theories and methods, integrate concepts and arguments from other Core courses, and analyze a range of practices and re/sources that culminate in a final paper and public presentation.
