Chicana/o-Latina/o Studies Program Description
Established in 1997, the Chicana/o-Latina/o Studies (CHILATST) major and minor has offered students interdisciplinary analytical tools for the study and research of Chicanx-Latinx experiences. CHILATST classes critically analyze and cover a broad selection of topics and are offered in departments and schools including Anthropology, Art and Art History, History, Sociology, English, Comparative Literature, and Education, representing the breadth of interests among our diverse faculty members. These classes provide an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the historical and contemporary experiences of US-based descendants of Latin America and the Caribbean. Our faculty recognize that the Program focuses on a rapidly developing, complex, and heterogeneous population, and that there is neither a singular Chicanx-Latinx identity nor a homogeneous community that comprises all such people.
