Welcome to the American Multicultural Studies (AMCS) Department at Sonoma State University. We are located in beautiful Sonoma County, in the heart of the Wine Country, just north of the San Francisco Bay Area. We welcome you to our website.
The AMCS Department is listed under American Studies programs in the CSU system. The newly-revised AMCS program reflects an innovative trend in American studies that is truly interdisciplinary. The core program remains grounded in Critical Ethnic Studies and the concentration and pathways draw upon concepts and methods in other disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The revised program will enable students to develop multi-and intercultural competence, critical thinking, and leadership skills that will help them navigate the fast-changing multicultural and multiracial American landscape.
The AMCS degree is versatile as evidenced by our graduates who are now practicing lawyers, college professors, social workers, educators, student affairs professionals, academic counselors, nonprofit administrators, arts administrators, and social entrepreneurs.
