The Department of Ethnic Studies offers major and minors leading to a B.A. degree in Ethnic Studies, African American Studies, Asian American Studies, Chicano Studies, and Native American Studies. Students may develop either a general emphasis in Ethnic Studies or a concentration on a specific group. An Ethnic Studies degree helps prepare students for graduate or professional school and careers in a number of areas including education, law, human services, organizing and advocacy, social welfare, urban planning, and state and county government. Ethnic Studies also prepares students for positions in education, government, and the private sector by cultivating a robust understanding of race and ethnic relations.
