Why Latinx Studies?
Latina and Latino Studies focuses on the historic and contemporary circumstances that shape Latina and Latino lives, spaces, subjectivities, and politics in the United States. This field encompasses diverse communities and nationalities while also offering critical attention to transnational dynamics or to how Latinas and Latinos relate and connect to cultural or geographical origins across the Americas.

LLSP Major - Opportunity
The Latina and Latino Studies Program calls for applications from Latinx Studies Majors for funding (up to $500) to cover expenses related to research projects, such as a senior thesis or independent research about US Latinx communities.
Why Study Latinx Studies?
Our curriculum engages in the productive tension between the common interests and differences affecting U.S Latina and Latinos. Students may expect to explore such commonalities/ differences in areas such as social movements, transnationalism, electoral politics, expressive cultures, race and comparative processes of racialization, immigration, queer theory, and gender and sexuality. Our classes are diverse in content, teaching methods, and student body.
