The Committee on Ethnicity, Migration, Rights is a standing committee in the Faculty of Arts & Sciences. The Committee offers students the opportunity to engage with questions surrounding the topics of ethnicity, indigeneity, human rights, and migration through a variety of disciplinary lens including the social sciences and humanities as well as several other Harvard schools such as law, health, and policy.  Focused both on domestic and international issues, students are encouraged to thinking comparatively and globally.  EMR also offers students curricular and co-curricular opportunities to engage with local communities on practical projects that deal with the committee's areas of focus. 

EMR is a vibrant and thriving community on campus including faculty, staff, and students.  Ethnic Studies hosts events, publishes a cross-listed course list, offers student research grants, connects students to mentors, and has a growing contingent of secondary concentrators.  We hope you find your place in EMR at Harvard.
