M.A. in Ethnic Studies
The Master of Arts in Ethnic Studies is designed to increase a student's knowledge and understanding of the experiences of people of color. The program provides training in techniques for the analysis of contemporary social problems which impinge on these experiences; and the program develops in the student a sound capacity to plan and evaluate policies aimed at the resolution of these problems. The focus is upon Asian Americans, Blacks, La Raza, and American Indian people, cultures, and societies.
The Master of Arts in Ethnic Studies is designed to be a very versatile degree; one that is inclusive rather than exclusive of employment opportunities. These possibilities range from ethnic oriented teaching and research, or community and multicultural resource development to practical application in the business and technical fields. Program graduates also are eligible to apply for teaching positions at the California community colleges in ethnic studies and related fields.
