The skills and knowledge that students gain while pursuing a BA degree with a Major in Ethnic Studies at CU Denver are transferable to a variety of careers. In common with other liberal arts graduates, those with a degree in ethnic studies will be trained in creative and critical thinking, complex reasoning, and effective communication. In addition, ethnic studies graduates will have cultural competency skills that are highly valued by employers, who serve increasingly diverse clientele. Other occupations that employ many ethnic studies graduates include: law, teaching, journalism, marketing, community organizing and social work. Ethnic studies graduates also find work in non-profit agencies and in federal, state, and local government agencies.

These degree requirements are subject to periodic revision by the academic department, and the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences reserves the right to make exceptions and substitutions as judged necessary in individual cases.
