Prospective Students


Given the interdisciplinarity of Mexican American Studies, a major in Mexican American Studies complements and adds value to all fields of study and professions—including education, business, law, public policy, health care, and STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) fields. Another benefit of pursuing a MAS major comes from research that documents a correlation between ethnic studies curriculum and increased academic performance for students from racial or ethnic communities. As such, a recommended path for many students interested in learning more about Mexican American history, culture, and perspectives, is to double major in MAS and another field. Students can easily complete the 120 credit hours that allows them to earn a degree in Mexican American Studies and a different field. Furthermore, the academic rigor and critical consciousness-raising the MAS program grooms college students toward pursuing graduate degrees.  If you are interested in pursuing a Masters or Doctoral degree, a MAS major readies you for the reading, writing, and theoretical challenges of graduate school. If you are interested in speaking with someone to learn more about MAS courses or the process for double majoring, contact Dr. Marie Miranda, MAS Director, Marie.Miranda@utsa.edu
