About

The Chicana and Latina Studies program of Loyola Marymount University centers on the study of key historical and contemporary issues that impact Mexican-origin and other US Latina/o communities as well as their unique influence in the United States.

Overview

The Chicana and Latina Studies program of Loyola Marymount University is committed to engage students in a transformative education that promotes a critical understanding of the complex and intersecting systems of power and privilege that have historically shaped Chicana/o and Latina/o communities in the US.

We foster a socially and intellectually engaged environment that prepares students as leaders in a society that is increasingly diverse, and which requires expertise bout racial, ethnic, gender, sexuality, political, and social differences.
