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. Based on a 2008 Utah Bureau of Economic and Business Research report, Utah is in the midst of an unprecedented demographic transformation, meaning the state is poised to become more racially and culturally diverse. Among five Wasatch Front counties (Salt Lake, Summit, Tooele, Utah and Weber), ethnic minorities currently constitute between 14% and 23% of the population, but by 2050, this will increase to 41% in Salt Lake County alone. Are you ready for change?

HOW DO I GET STARTED?

 

First, make an appointment to meet with the Ethnic Studies Academic Program Manager and Advisor, Dr. Archuleta at elizabeth.archuleta@utah.edu. Next, check out our website. (Map)
