PhD in Chicano/Latino Studies

The PhD program in Chicano/Latino Studies prepares scholars, researchers, and teachers in the social sciences and humanities to develop expertise in the historical and contemporary experiences of Chicanos and Latinos in their social, cultural, political, and economic contexts.

The program emphasizes global, transdisciplinary, comparative, and applied approaches to knowledge which enhance collaborative scholarly efforts within the university, peer educational institutions, and the broader community. It addresses Chicano and Latino experiences in home communities in the United States, and international dimensions and diaspora experieces involving communities in the United States, Latin American, and the Caribbean.
