Master's Program

Master of Arts in Chicana and Chicano Studies

We will not be accepting M.A. applications until the Spring of 2017 (for Fall 2017).

The Master of Arts in Chicana and Chicano Studies offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Mexican origin and other Latino/a communities in the U.S. and on the U.S.-Mexican borderlands, especially in relation to culture, labor, health, immigration, gender, sexuality, and human rights. We emphasize local, national, transnational, and transborder contexts as well as gender/sexuality and borderlands studies. Our degree enables students to take advantage of local border resources, while providing excellent preparation for continuing onto a doctoral program and/or serving community needs in diverse professional capacities, including law, education, public health, and social services.
