Chican@ and Latin@ Studies

College of Letters & Science

Welcome

Mauricio Salvo, PhD Student sharing his journey to graduate school

 

Welcome to the Chican@/Latin@ Studies Program at the University of Wisconsin, Madison! The Program in Chican@ and Latin@ Studies (CLS) offers a systematic and interdisciplinary analysis of Mexican- and Latin-American-origin people, cultures, and collectivities within the United States. The CLS certificate is designed to provide students with a broad knowledge base and the intellectual tools to understand the unity and diversity of U.S. Latina/o populations. The primary objective of the CLS Program is to train students in the study of Chican@ and Latin@s, as well as to introduce them to the central questions, topics, and applications that have emerged in this field of inquiry.

 

CLS offers a variety of courses, some focusing on particular national-origin groups or specific academic disciplines, and others organized around comparative topics or issues. We welcome you to join our academic community of learners.

 

Sincerely,

 

Professor Benjamin Marquez
