About

The Mexican American Studies (MAS) academic program at The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley is a social justice-oriented program that prepares students to work, serve and research in their communities to address and navigate the complex socio-political/historical conditions surrounding Latin@/Chican@ communities.

Overview

The Mexican American Studies program from The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley prepares students to be leaders and advocates in their communities and professions to transform their conditions and promote a just society.

Key Features 

  • This is an experiential learning opportunity for Mexican American Studies majors. It provides students committed to social justice in the Mexican American communities the opportunity to get hands on experience while reflecting on that experience critically through the lens of Chicano Studies. 
  • Students will partner with a public, community-based and/or non-profit organization committed to social justice for the Mexican American and Latino communities in addressing significant community needs. The students' participation will be driven by the needs of the community. 

Programme Structure

  • The course itself will be co-constructed by the students, the members of the community who are involved in the organization and/or project, and the instructor. 
  • The purpose is different from an internship in that the process is geared towards developing a lifelong ethic of service and civic engagement and is not necessarily career or job oriented.
