Negotiate your place as a maker of social change in local and global communities. Come study with the RCD!
Students pursue Studies in Race, Colonialism, and Diaspora at Tufts in order to:
- develop the necessary tools of analysis to explain contemporary and historical social inequalities and oppressions, and to identify solutions and avenues for social repair
- hone informed and empowered commitments to civic engagement, equity, and social justice
- cultivate your talent for creative and cooperative engagement with diverse people and communities
- learn ways of reasoning and interpretation that reveal how social power functions in different contexts, and how it is contradicted and transformed in diverse ways
- go deep into the histories, cultures, struggles, and future outlooks of peoples and groups who are underrepresented in the traditional Humanities and Social Sciences curricula
- become part of one of the most ethnically and racially diverse learning communities at Tufts
- participate in engaged scholarship to promote anti-racist, intersectional, and decolonizing perspectives on the most pressing social challenges facing our communities today
- find resources, support, and mentors to become change-makers within and beyond institutions at local, national, and international levels
Our doors are open to all! And we look forward to meeting you and discussing your interests. Schedule a time to meet the Chair or the Director of Studies.
