MAS Faculty


Currently, six full-time faculty comprise Mexican American Studies (MAS). Their expertise represents a range of disciplinary expertise, including anthropology, sociology, literature, education, creative writing, and media studies. They also draw on a variety of theoretical frameworks, including decolonial studies, critical race theory, and Chicana feminism. Our faculty take pride in mentoring MAS majors, preparing them to present research at national academic conferences (like the National Association for Chicana and Chicano Studies) and preparing them for advanced studies at prestigious graduate programs across the nation.
