Program Scope

The Minor in Arab and Muslim Ethnicities and Diasporas Studies (AMED) is a multidisciplinary program that provides undergraduate students with a justice-centered analysis in which gender, race, ethnicity, sexuality, citizenship, age, ability, and other structural inequalities are integral to the study of Arab and Muslim communities, and addresses the context in which these groups have existed and continue to develop in the current socio-political climate. The program is designed to bring together a wide range of areas including Arab/Middle East/Global Studies, Race/Ethnic Studies, and Critical Cultural Studies. Curricular focus areas include History, Identity, Politics; Pop, Culture, Literature, Art, Creativity, Activism; Gender, Sexuality, Race; Immigration and Citizenship; Comparative Studies with other Communities. AMED provides students with a non-traditional perspective on national and transnational positioning and resistances of Arab and Muslim communities.
