An undergraduate minor in critical race and ethnic studies may lead to continued work in ethnic studies, but is also excellent preparation for graduate work in history, sociology, English, Anthropology, and American cultures. Graduates our program have found work in primary and secondary education, journalism, publishing and community service. UVM Career Services is here to help in the quest for a career.
The Critical Race and Ethnic Studies minor gives students a more representative picture of the society in which they will live and work. Knowledge and understanding of race and ethnicity issues provides excellent training for careers in business, law, education, journalism, media arts, social work and theology. In fact, given the broad interdisciplinary focus of the College of Arts and Sciences undergraduate program, CRES majors are equipped with a broad range of transferable skills, enabling them to succeed in any profession.
