WHAT IS ETHNIC STUDIES?

Ethnic Studies is an interdisciplinary field of research that focuses on the lives, literatures, and cultures of African Americans, Chican@s/Latin@s, American Indians, Asian Americans, Pacific Islanders, and other racialized groups in the United States.

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?

Contact or make an appointment to meet with the Ethnic Studies Academic Advisor. We are located in the Business Classroom Building Suite #308, or you can reach us at 801-581-5206.

New book shows the difference between first-generation students and middle class students:

"There’s a growing literature on how intensely middle class parents invest in their children’s success, from Annette Lareau’s now classic study showing the “concerted cultivation” parenting of extensive involvement in extra curricular activities, driving, advising, and being audience for children’s many performances; to extensive involvement in children’s daily challenges; to ongoing advice and engagement in students’ college success and then negotiating connections for first jobs.

I mention this research when I’m talking with faculty and staff who so often lament that First Generation college students “won’t ask for help”. We talk about how students who may have had to be incredibly independent and self-motivated and resourceful to get themselves to college may believe that they now have to prove that they can do it on their own, or may be doubting that they deserve help, or may simply not know that help is available. Or they may balk at the term “help” that can imply that they are in trouble."

What stands out is that first generation students start out at a disadvantage and are less likely to take advantage of the resources available to help them succeed in college. If you are a student and reading this, take advantage of what the U of U offers.
