I'm just curious to know if there any Ethnic Studies (African-American, Latin American, Asian, etc.) majors in this forum.

If so, what do you plan to do after college?

Do regional studies majors count? Kinda the same, and both pretty rare.
Why? Are you planning on going into Ethnic studies? Which one? Or was this just a random thought?

By Tenisghs (Tenisghs) on Wednesday, September 15, 2004 - 06:18 pm: Edit

I'm considering a double major/minor in African-American Studies. And yeah, Regional Studies can count in the list although it sounds like Geography to me.

Yeah, it kinda does.
But I'm probably going to major in Political Science, Economics, IR, or Asian Studies. If I do Asian Studies, I'd go further into a subcatagory: Near, Middle, Far East Asian. Whichever one I major in, I'll still take at least beginner level courses and maybe intermediate in the other subjects. As of now, I plan to go , for grad school, to Columbia's SIPA (School fo International and Public Affairs), Georgetown's Walsh SFS, or maybe JHU, Harvard, Yale...I haven't really looked into grad schools much past CU or G-town. I'm not sure bout what I want to do for a living. I might do int'l business, so at least I could travel. Gov't, politics, law, and teaching is still open to me. Although I'd hate to go to top schools and spend $200,000 and wind up teaching ESL.

What about you? What can you do with Afro-American Studies?

By Tenisghs (Tenisghs) on Wednesday, September 15, 2004 - 10:35 pm: Edit

I'm focusing on Political Science, Public Affairs and Education. I'm interested in policy and history issues.

By Tenisghs (Tenisghs) on Wednesday, September 15, 2004 - 10:35 pm: Edit

A minor in African-American Studies might be better for me although I would easily double major in it.
