History of the Program


UTSA was the first institution in Texas to offer a Bachelor of Arts degree in Mexican American Studies. Established in 1993, Mexican American Studies (MAS) continues the tradition of the Mexican American Civil Rights struggle by participating in the creation of a college-going culture for San Antonio and South Texas. It is housed in the Bicultural Bilingual Department in the College of Education and Human Development. Currently, there are six full-time MAS faculty members, and over 100 majors and 80 double majors. The program has graduated close to 100 students.
