Careers

What Can I Do with a Minor in Ethnic Studies?

The coursework required for the Ethnic Studies Minor exposes you to theoretical and critical analyses of race and ethnicity. This minor can be a valuable addition to a History, English, Business, Education, or Anthropology major, to name just a few. The comparative and interdisciplinary courses offer foundational  perspectives on four underrepresented groups: African Americans, Asian Americans, Chicano(as)/Latino(as), and Native Americans.

We emphasize developing relationships with organizations whose work strengthens multicultural and multiracial relationships locally, regionally, nationally, and globally. You will be encouraged to seek out internships which provide you the opportunity to incorporate community service with your academic training.
