The program is designed to prepare individuals for advanced graduate work leading to the doctorate, for professional roles in teaching, research, and administration within both the public and private sectors. The theoretical and conceptual tools of several disciplines are critically utilized within the framework of a third world perspective. The program applies this approach to instruction, research, and community involvement. Interaction occurs with the surrounding San Francisco Bay Area communities of color and with students throughout the program.
San Francisco State University is the only higher education institution in the nation to offer the Master of Arts in Ethnic Studies. Thus, the campus is clearly in the forefront of colleges and universities in the area of ethnic and multicultural studies. Although the graduate program only has been in existence since 1988, alumni of the M.A. in Ethnic Studies have gone on to doctoral programs at such institutions as University of California campuses, Temple University, the University of San Francisco, Stanford, Yale, and the University of Michigan.
A student who does not meet the program admission requirements may be admitted on a conditionally classified status (space permitting) whereby s/he would have to make-up deficiencies within a prescribed time period.
Courses for this discipline are listed in alphabetical sequence (consult Index for page reference).
