Race, Ethnicity and Immigration

Students who specialize in this area focus on the role of the individual statuses of race/ethnicity and the experience of immigration (e.g., rates of in- vs out-migration). Students may concentrate on either the individual experiences of this or the broader social trends associated with different race groups and immigrant status. Students are expected to understand the current literature on these topics as well as the range of methods (quantitative or qualitative) that are associated with studying the role of race and ethnicity, immigration status, and social life.
