What careers are available with an Asian American Studies minor?
I am interested in doing an Asian American Studies minor because I am interested in the area of study. But at the same time, I'm wondering what careers are open to me with this degree? #studies #asian
If you are interested jobs more closely aligned with your Asian-Am minor, I would suggest looking into internships at institutions that support Asian-Americans and start cultivating your professional network while also gaining valuable experience and insights for a future career in this area. I see that you're in the DMV area, which is AWESOME because there are so many great organizations nearby.
A few suggestions are to check out the following places for news or job/internship opportunities: (DC) Mayor's Office on Asian and Pacific Islander Affairs (https://apia.dc.gov/), National Council of Asian Pacific Americans (NCAPA)(http://www.ncapaonline.org/sign_up_for_updates), the Asia Foundation, or the Asia Society. I hope this helps. Good luck in your studies!
Choosing a major is not the same as choosing a career. It is one step in a process that may lead to a number of different career options. Most majors do not directly correlate to specific occupations. Instead, choosing a major allows you to pursue your interests and develop skills that are transferable to a variety of career fields.
One way to begin thinking about your choice of major is by addressing the following questions:
What is the focus of this major?
What skills will I develop in this major?
What are some of the most popular career options for graduates with this major?
What other resources are available to help me with this decision?
