The Ethnic and Women's Studies Department offers an educational program designed to equip students with the knowledge, analytical skills, and experience necessary to effectively live and work in today's diverse society.

History, culture, and contemporary issues are explored and analyzed through the intersecting perspectives of ethnicity, race, class and gender. The curriculum combines an interdisciplinary knowledge of our socio-cultural world with opportunities in service learning, internships, and community-based research.

EWS offers a major in Gender, Ethnicity, and Multicultural Studies (GEMS) with two subplans. The first subplan, BA in GEMS, allows for emphases in African American Studies, Asian American Studies, Chicano/Latino Studies, Native American Studies, or Women's Studies. The second subplan, BA in GEMS Pre-Credential, prepares students for the preliminary Multiple Subjects Teaching Credential. The department also offers minors in African American Studies, Native American Studies, Asian American Studies, Chicano/Latino Studies, Women's Studies, and an interdisciplinary minor in Multicultural Leadership.

Courses are open to all students in the university. Enrollment is encouraged for those who are seriously concerned about diversity and the quality of life in the 21st-century. Fields in which such concerns can find direct application are teaching, urban planning, social services, politics, counseling, human resources, recreation, law, the ministry, and others that have a direct bearing on particular ethnic and gender groups.

A service learning requirement allows students an applied experience prior to graduation. Students have the choice of  enrolling in EWS 280  or service learning designated courses.
