American Minority and Ethnic Studies (AMES)

Overview

American Ethnic and Minority Studies exposes students to key content, methodologies, and theories in the comparative and interdisciplinary study of African Americans, Asian-Americans, and Chicanos in the United States. This program deals with relevant knowledge in sociology, psychology, economics, political science, and the humanities.

At Green River Community College you may begin your studies by taking courses that prepare you to be "major ready" and transfer to a university. While you are taking your major prerequisites within your transfer degree, you can focus your distribution choices and elective credits toward meeting your educational goals and area of interest.

All transferability of classes to four-year institutions is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Students should contact an advisor at the college to which they intend to transfer. Please visit the College Transfer Center for more information.
