California State University, Fullerton
Ethnic Studies B.A. with Chicano Studies Option

Chicana and Chicano Studies is an interdisciplinary field, drawing from and contributing to the humanities, social sciences and the arts. The department offers a unique opportunity for students to gain an understanding and awareness of the vital presence and increasing significance of the Chicano population in the United States. Studies of the Chicana/o experience include history, culture, art, literature, music and contemporary issues, such as education, family identity, immigration and citizenship, ethnicity and gender. Particular emphasis is also given to other Latino cultures in the United States. Community service learning and research is an important aspect of the curriculum.
Because of its interdisciplinary scope, Chicana/o Studies offers a broad liberal arts education with theoretical perspectives and critical thinking skills to prepare students for rewarding careers in the public and private sector. Chicana/o Studies graduates enter careers in business, communications, counseling, government science, law, social services and teaching.
