Chicana/o Studies

Chicana/o Studies centers on understanding key historical and contemporary issues that shape Mexican-origin and other US Latina/o communities such as the formation of racial and cultural identities, contemporary politics, and issues of representation.

An interdisciplinary department with a focus on literature, cultural studies, history, and political science, Chicana/o Studies examines the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, class, and places the experiences of US Latina/os at the center of this analysis.

We invite students into a dynamic engagement with questions of knowledge, power, and social change, while developing their own interests and the skills necessary for success.
