Mexican American Studies

The Mexican American Studies Program (MASP) coordinates the Associates Degree’s core classes. Over forty sections of Mexican American History, Political Science, Literature, Humanities and Art courses are offered per academic year. All courses are part of the core curriculum and transferable to other state institutions of higher education. With an annual budget of $3,000, MASP has coordinated over thirty events that include lectures, conferences, cultural events, and community services from 2008 to 2010. More than 7,000 students and community members attended these events. Currently MASP has institutional relations with the Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) at the UT-Austin and at the University of Houston. Additionally, MASP has program relations with the MASP at the UT-San Antonio and at the UT-Pan American. As a result of successful conferences and symposiums organized by MASP, the program has built relationship with the National Association of Chicana and Chicano Studies (NACCS) National and Tejas Regional levels as well as the Texas Folklife.
