Career Possibilities

 Ethnic Studies is excellent preparation for graduate school and professional careers.  Ethnic Studies majors and minors enter government service, politics, community/social service, business, public school teaching/administration, higher education teaching/administration, social work, counseling, law, journalism, and much more.

Ethnic Studies has prepared me for my current career activities by allowing me to realize that the process of education does not always take place in a classroom, but is a “communion” between participants in a dialogue characterized by a reciprocal, and socially relevant exchange.

Ethnic Studies prepared me to work with the diverse community of Del Paso Heights. The focus is on how one can take the theories and philosophies of Ethnic Studies and turn them into programs and activities that create a real difference in the community.
