Legacy and Leadership: The Long Beach Ethnic Studies Program


The district is proud to collaborate with Cal State Long Beach in offering free dual enrollment Ethnic Studies Courses to Long Beach Unified 10th, 11th and 12th graders.  Students who successfully complete courses earn both Long Beach Unified and CSULB credit toward graduation.  

The primary course, US Diversity and the Ethnic Experience, is a survey of four major ethnic groups (Native American, African American, Chicano/Latino American and Asian American) from the earliest periods of Native American history, through migrations to the Americas, into the present conditions of U.S. society.  Special attention is given to the formation and transformation of each ethnic group and their individual and collective roles in the development of the United States.

Additional classes may be available for students that complete the primary course and wish to gain deeper knowledge in the specified content areas.
