Chicanxs and Latinxs are the largest ethnic group in California. This segment of our population will have a major impact on our society, as its presence translates into an increasing economic and political influence. Crucial social, economic, and political decisions will be made that affect this group and the nation at large. The growth of Latinx-owned businesses, Spanish-language media networks, and political organizations are all indicators of the importance of Spanish-speaking people in the U.S. economy.

Chicano Studies majors are trained to analyze social issues, think critically, and conduct research. All majors receive applied as well as theoretical training with a school or community agency to observe firsthand the social issues and theories which they study. These skills are useful in professional life and are valued in the public and private sectors.

Students of non-Latinx origin find that Chicano and Latin American Studies courses are personally rewarding because they enable them to understand and relate to persons of different social and cultural backgrounds. Chicanx and Latinx students find these courses highly conducive to strengthening their sense of identity and pride in their heritage.

Students with a B.A. in Chicano Studies can enter master's or doctoral programs in the humanities and social sciences and in professional schools in such areas as Chicanx studies, ethnic studies, anthropology, political science, history, public administration, Latinx literature, multimedia, social work, and education. Also, students are encouraged to pursue double majors and minors; one in Chicano Studies and the second in a professional area of their preference. Students with questions related to their future careers or seeking advising assistance should consult with the major and minor advisors of the Chicano and Latin American Studies Department.
