Ethnic Studies (major: 33 hours / minor: 18 hours)
Ethnic Studies can enhance your sensitivity to diverse groups and their backgrounds
and enable you to better understand the socioeconomic dynamics that have impacted
their pasts and will likely affect their futures.
The National Association of Social Workers’ (NASW) website quotes from their Code of Ethics, "Social workers.
. . should advocate for changes in policy and legislation to improve social conditions in order to meet basic
human needs and promote social justice. . . . Social workers should act to prevent and eliminate domination of,
exploitation of, and discrimination against any person, group, or class" (p. 27). They call on their organization
to “assume greater leadership in developing both internal and external policies and programs to end racism in
society and in the social work profession.”
Because the organization feels that professionals, and society at large, have a long way to go in gaining cultural
competence, they recently developed standards that require social workers to deliver culturally competent
services to an increasingly diverse clientele. These changes resulted from the demographic changes that are
occurring in the United States. The organization argues, “effective care is impossible without a working
knowledge and understanding of a person’s or group’s culture and background.” Because NASW supports an
inclusive society, their policy statement on Racism asserts, “It is the ethical responsibility of NASW members to
assess their own practices and the agencies in which they work for specific ways to end racism where it exists.”
Ethnic Studies course will provide students with the ability to examine and understand the impact of race on
their clients and to bring about measurable changes in themselves as well as the institutions and organizations
for which they work.
