Minor in Mexican American Studies

Welcome to the Mexican American Studies Minor! 

The MXAS minor offers a variety of courses in numerous disciplines.  These courses are designed to promote an understanding of Mexican American history, literature, culture, politics, art, language as well as politics and sociology.  Such a background will prove beneficial to future attorneys, physicians, nurses, teachers, law enforcement officials, and any professional who works in an area with a sizable Mexican American population.  

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.
