Thematic Concentration in Education, Access, and Equity
The concentration in Education, Access, and Equity explores history, policy, and practice in education to understand how educational opportunity is shaped by issues of race, ethnicity, and difference. The goal of the concentration is to develop an understanding of the core issues facing educators and policy makers so that students may learn how they can contribute to the social and political discourse surrounding issues of education and opportunity policy in the U.S.
The concentration is not declared on Axess; it does not appear on the transcript or diploma. Students interested in the Education, Access, and Equity concentration should contact the CSRE undergraduate program office.
