The Ethnic Studies Program of the University of Utah (ESPUU) is a scholarly program with focus on the distinctive social, political, cultural, linguistic and historical experiences of ethnic minorities in the United States. Its specific focus is the cultures, histories and experiences of American Indians and Americans of African, Asian, and Mexican descent. Four programs currently constitute the Ethnic Studies Program:
Each program offers a minor. A general Ethnic Studies minor is also available.
The coordinator of the programs also act as advisors to students interested in a minor in an Ethnic Studies area, and can help the student understand the specific academic requirements of the minor. Students should consult with the appropriate minor advisor to set up a program and to have the minor officially declared.
