The role identity plays in your personal and professional worlds only grows as you explore the world and different career paths.
This concentration uses identity as a category of analysis and as subject matter, examining how its social construction reflects and determines differentials of power and opportunity. You analyze identity groups as social agents whose biological, socialized identities and experiences are shaped by—and help shape—systems of gender, race, ethnicity, socio-economic class, sexuality, and national power.
This concentration is interested, above all, in the changing status of various identities over time and space. The analytical, collaboration, and reflective thinking skills you develop help prepare you for careers in all fields, but especially consulting, management, diversity and inclusion, higher education, healthcare, hospitality, and the arts.
