The Committee on Ethnicity, Migration, Rights offers two secondary fields. The secondary in Ethnicity, Migration, Rights provides students an opportunity to pursue sustained, interdisciplinary study of ethnicity, migration, indigeneity, and human rights, with a particular focus on Asian American, Latinx, and Native American studies. The Latina/o Studies secondary enables a more specific focus on Latinx populations in the United States, including attention to history, language, culture, demographics, legal rights, and immigration status.
The EMR courselist comprises a wide variety of classes, taught by faculty from across the arts, humanities, and social sciences disciplines in FAS, as well as at other Harvard schools. Given the relevance of EMR topics to both local and global issues, the secondary field both encourages and provides opportunities for interacting directly with local communities and working outside the traditional classroom.
