About Our Offerings

UNC’s Chicana/o and Latinx Studies offers a variety of programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.

Our undergraduate offerings include majors in Mexican American Studies Liberal Arts and Mexican American Studies K-12 Teaching. We also have a minor in Mexican American Studies.

Our graduate certificate programs include a Mexican American Studies Advanced Graduate Certificate program designed for those with teacher licensure and a Mexican American Studies Graduate Certificate Program.


The Chicana/o and Latinx Studies faculty is highly experienced in teaching undergraduates. This experience, combined with the small size of most MAS courses, ensures that you will receive a superior education. The faculty is committed to giving you as much personal attention as possible in the classroom and in advising sessions.

The CLAS faculty interests include subjects as diverse as latin history, immigration, gender studies, border studies and chicana/o literature and theory. Our faculty members are actively involved with professional organizations and regularly make scholarly presentations to local, state, national and international associations.  Faculty members are constantly updating their knowledge of Hispanic culture and civilization, pursuing post-doctoral training and new professional interests.
