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.

How should "first-generation" student be defined?
A. Neither parent has been to college.
B. Neither parent has earned a bachelor's degree.
C. A student who is the first in the family to go to college.

What if one or both parents attended some college? What if one or both parents earned an Associate's Degree? What if one or both parents have a bachelor's or higher degree from another country, but it isn't recognized in the United States? What if an older sibling went to college?

An article in the current edition of The Chronicle for Higher Education discusses this very point. What do you think?
