The Mexican American Studies Minor requires a minimum of 18 upper-division hours of designated course work. 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 adviser to establish a plan of study. This should be done prior to completing 6 hours of course work listed for the program. The program form must be filed with an 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. Students may choose from the following courses. All courses are taught in English unless otherwise indicated.
On the right I have included a list of employment opportunities with the National Trust for Historic Preservation. Not all of these have to do directly with Mexican American Studies, but a knowledge of this field would help make one more marketable for many of these positions. Realize that the field of public history (museums, documentary making, oral history projects, and the like) is growing. On a related note realize that there are a host of jobs in the world for which you will qualify, most of which you may not know existed.
