Our courses benefit from the wealth of Latina/o communities that reside and flourish in Chicago yet we also look at the experiences of Latina/o communities throughout the United States. Courses may discuss the realities of Puerto Rican and Mexican communities in Chicago, second generation Dominicans in New York, or generations of Mexican Americans in Houston. Our curriculum engages in the productive tension between the common interests and differences affecting US Latinas/os. Students may expect to explore such commonalities/ differences in areas such as social movements, transnationalism, electoral politics, race and comparative processes of racialization, immigration, queer theory, gender and sexuality, language and identity, and cultural and artistic expressions.

The Latina and Latino Studies Program's Course List is as follows:
