Program Information
Sacramento City College recognizes the need for a more extensive
inclusion of minorities in the American educational system. The Ethnic
Studies Program at Sacramento City College is, therefore, open to all
students and serves as a response to the needs, demands, and experiences of Sacramento’s minority communities. It can be of vital importance to the student because the program makes available a broader perspective on ethnic groups not ordinarily provided in primary and secondary educational institutions.

Sacramento City College offers a broad array of courses in African
American Studies, Asian American Studies, Mexican American/Chicano Studies, Native American Studies, Gender and Ethnicity, and The
European Experience. The program offers a course on the Introduction to Ethnic Studies along with general courses on American ethnic
groups in Sociology, Psychology, Anthropology, and History.

Career Opportunities
The Ethnic Studies program will prepare students who wish to transfer
to an Ethnic Studies program at a four-year institution. Ethnic Studies
provides the student with various career opportunities such as equity
officer, social worker, diversity director, ethnologist, human relations
personnel, and human resources personnel. The program will also
provide a background to students hoping to teach in primary or post-
secondary school programs.

Upon completion of this program, the student will be able to:

  • demonstrate critical thinking, communication, and research skills
    relative to ethnic minorities in the United States.
  • evaluate and discuss various interdisciplinary approaches to the
    study of ethnic minorities in the United States.
  • analyze and discuss the social, political, economic, and cultural
    experience of ethnic minorities in the United States.
  • demonstrate an understanding of ethnic minorities relative to
    history, politics, social sciences, and the humanities.
