WHY ETHNIC STUDIES?

To be profitable and successful, businesses and organizations have to embrace diversity. They need to understand a diverse consumer/client population and cater to diverse groups by tailoring their products and services. For this, they need a diverse workforce. Ethnic Studies can help you easily move and work across borders—cultural, religious, racial, or international—and become an attractive job candidate.

WHAT CAN I DO WITH AN ETHNIC STUDIES MAJOR?

Ethnic Studies doesn’t prepare you for a career. It prepares you for multiple career choices! Employers teach you the job skills you need, but they don’t teach you how to successfully navigate an ever-changing and increasingly diverse world.

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

First, make an appointment to meet with the Ethnic Studies Academic Program Manager and Advisor, Elizabeth Archuleta, Ph.D.

Hours: 7:00-4:00.

Next, check out our website. Start by clicking here to read more about the major/minor.

Important events coming up next week in honor of U Remembers!

Both events seek to engage a much wider audience and speak to the issues that many Ethnic Studies courses may raise.

First, Beverley Mitchell brings an edgy approach by comparing the condition of American plantations to the Nazi death camps. This takes place from 12:00-1:30 in the Marriott Library's Gould Auditorium.

Second, Dieter Kunitz (from the US Holocaust Museum) headlines a roundtable on racial construction and state violence. Details on attached flyer!

Please plan on attending!
