Chicano/Latino Studies, Minor
The minor in Chicano/Latino studies provides undergraduate students with an opportunity to examine the historical and contemporary experiences of Chicanos and Latinos. The curriculum provides awareness, knowledge and appreciation of the language, history, culture, literature, sociology, anthropology, politics, social ecology, health, medicine and creative accomplishments in Chicano/Latino communities. In addition to satisfying the requirements for the minor, students are encouraged to take advantage of the variety of unique educational opportunities available at UCI. Opportunities like the Education Abroad Program (EAP), the Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program (UROP) and the Summer Academic Enrichment Program (SAEP) allow students to gain real-world experience that complements their participation in the Chicano/Latino studies department.
