From the St. Mary’s University website, 2023: “The Mexican American Studies (MAS) is an interdisciplinary, undergraduate academic minor credit and certificate program that focuses on the U.S. Mexican American experience.
“The goal of the minor and certificate is to prepare students for culturally competent professional lives attentive to local, state and national issues, and increase Mexican American representation within in-demand fields such as education, policy analysis, public administration, governance, economic development, and the arts and humanities.
“The Mexican American Studies courses build knowledge and research skills of Mexican Americans—their politics, histories, communities and customs and behaviors. It prepares students to be culturally-informed and relevant in careers in education, economic and community development, community leadership, elective office, law school and graduate education.”
