The Latina/o & Mexican American Studies (LMAS) program mission is to create a student-centered, stimulating and innovative environment to advance and support the teaching, research and advocacy of LMAS knowledge at the University of North Texas. Goals of the LMAS academic program include providing students with an understanding of the implications of Latina/o and Mexican-American past, current, and future history and culture on regional communities and beyond.
LMAS is an interdisciplinary field designed to provide undergraduate students with an opportunity to examine the historical and contemporary experiences of Latinas/os in the United States. The curriculum promotes knowledge, and appreciation of the politics, history, language, culture, literature, sociology, anthropology, economics, and creative (art, dance, drama, film, music) accomplishments in Latina/o communities.
The interdisciplinary nature of Latina/o & Mexican-American Studies at UNT allows students to diversify their course work across multiple departments such as Anthropology, Economics, Dance & Theater, English, History, Political Science, and Spanish.
