About the Chicano/Latino Studies Program

The Chicano/Latino Studies Program at Michigan State University began in 1997 to serve scholarly and community needs. Academically, the CLS program offers dynamic courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. The program administers and offers an undergraduate minor, a graduate certificate, and a PhD in Chicano/Latino Studies. We invite you to explore our website and learn more about what the Chicano/Latino Studies Program has to offer.
