The purpose of this study is to shed some light on the different types of discrimination that Hispanic and Latinx individuals experience in the United States. Does education level play a role in the kind of discrimination the Hispanic/ Latinx population experiences? Further studies must be conducted to determine the role of education level and immigrant status in Hispanic/Latinx discrimination. The researcher used the Quantitative method for this study by designing a Qualtrics survey sent to all the participants. A Qualtrics survey was also sent to students in the School of Social, via email by the Administrative Support Coordinator. The study's finding showed that individuals with higher education perceived more discrimination based on of Major Experiences with Discrimination Scale. Future studies could focus more on whether perceived discrimination becomes a barrier to accomplishing Hispanic/Latinx individuals set life goals.
