The Latino/a Studies minor is one of the minors that the Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity was mandated to develop through a curricular focus on traditionally marginalized, under-represented, or misrepresented groups in the U.S. The point of such a focus is to prepare students to meet the increasingly complex demands of living in a multiracial, multiethnic, and poly-cultural world. (By Latinos and Latinas we mean U.S.-based “minorities” who are descendants of people in Latin America and whose primary identity formation has occurred as a result of living in the U.S. However, since identities are not insular, our courses explore both sides of the border and the reality/ metaphor of the border itself.)
