WELCOME TO THE CHICAN@/LATIN@ STUDIES PROGRAM AT THE UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN, MADISON!
The Program in Chican@ and Latin@ Studies (CLS) offers a systematic and interdisciplinary analysis of Mexican- and Latin-American-origin people, cultures, and collectivities within the United States. The CLS certificate is designed to provide students with a broad knowledge base and the intellectual tools to understand the unity and diversity of U.S. Latina/o populations. The primary objective of the CLS Program is to train students in the study of Chican@ and Latin@s and to introduce them to the central questions, topics, and applications that have emerged in this field of inquiry. CLS offers a variety of courses, some focusing on particular national-origin groups or specific academic disciplines, and others organized around comparative topics or issues. We welcome you to join our academic community of learners.
Curious about CLS? Our committed and engaging faculty offer interdisciplinary undergraduate courses at all levels. Check out our listings to find out more.
