about Mexican/Latin American Studies (M/LAT)
Mexico/Latin American/Latinx Studies is an interdisciplinary program that focuses on the diverse histories and cultures of the Americas. A degree in this rich field will open opportunities for you in the United States and abroad. The continuing importance of Latin America for the United States and the growing Latina/o population in the Bay Area creates a number of opportunities for students to work in government, business, teaching, community organizing, law, and a host of other related fields.
What you will learn:
Here, you will learn about the past and the present of Latin Americans and the Latinx population in the United States, and the national relationships that bring about change, both positive and negative.
