Mexican American Studies Minor

Mexican American Studies (also known as Chicano Studies) is a multi-disciplinary concentration offered by the College of Liberal Arts. This program focuses on the study of Mexican Americans. The area does not offer a degree program, but it does offer a minor that contributes to the broadening experiences of students majoring in other areas. Mexican American Studies are intended to serve the general education needs of students who are either interested in the cultural aspects of the community, or who intend to complete specific degree programs that require Mexican American Studies courses.


The Mexican American Studies Minor requires a minimum of 18 upper-division hours of designated coursework. A student may not use the same course to satisfy both major and minor requirements.

Students electing a Mexican American Studies Minor are expected to develop knowledge of major writers and works, and historical, political, and linguistic trends in Mexican American Studies.

Students who select this minor must consult with and have approval of the Mexican American Studies advisor to establish a plan of study. This should be done prior to completing 6 semester hours of coursework listed for the program. The program form must be filed with the academic advisor in the College of Liberal Arts and certified upon application for graduation by the Dean of the College in which the major study degree will be awarded.
