Welcome to The Department of Mexican American Studies

The Department of Mexican American Studies (MAS) at the University of Arizona offers interdisciplinary degree programs designed to study, recover and disseminate knowledge of the history, culture, and intellectual legacy of Chicanx, Mexican, Indigenous, and Latinx peoples in the United States and across the Américas. The Mexican American Studies program does this through decolonial epistemologies, pedagogies, and scholarship located at the intersections of race, class, gender, and sexuality. We consider social change imperative for the empowerment of Chicanx, Mexican, Indigenous, and Latinx populations who are disproportionately impacted by legacies of colonialism, racism, patriarchy, and their contemporary manifestations.
