Department of Critical Race and Political Economy

Critical Race and Political Economy (CRPE) introduces students to the interdisciplinary study of race, colonialism, migration, and political economy. This curriculum provides a comparative and relational framework for examining law, policing, education, housing, political economy, arts, media, and representation in local and global contexts.

Within the CRPE major, each student may complete a pathway in CRPE, in Africana Studies, or in Critical Social Thought. Minors are available in CRPE, Africana Studies, and Latinx Studies. Advanced seminars allow students to use this framework for in-depth study of a particular pathway.
