Do you want to deeply explore the Chicano/Latino experience? Chicana/o studies is an international, cross-disciplinary program of research, teaching and public service that provides students with the opportunity to study the experiences, values, cultural representations and socio-economic issues of the Chicano/Latino community. Knowledge of its theoretical and methodological framework also serves students seeking comparative analysis with other populations and global communities.
After completing survey courses at the lower division levels, Chicana/Chicano studies majors choose to specialize in either of two areas: the Cultural Studies emphasis integrates literature, culture, and artistic expression; the Social/Policy Studies track emphasizes social theory, research methods, area studies in community and health issues. Students are expected to read, write and speak Spanish at a level suitable for future study and work involving Chicanx and Latinx perspectives.
