WELCOME TO THE INTERCOLLEGIATE CHICANA/O LATINA/O STUDIES DEPARTMENT AT THE CLAREMONT COLLEGES

Chicana/o-Latina/o Studies is an intercollegiate program at the Claremont Colleges. Chicana/o-Latina/o Studies emerged in the academy as a product of educational and social movements of the 1960s. These movements led to the initial creation of the program here at The Claremont Colleges in the 1960’s, making our program the second oldest in the nation. More recently, Chicana/o-Latina/o Studies has emerged as a field of inquiry relating to Latin Americans in the hemisphere and has been the site for work seeking to transcend the gaps in area studies and ethnic studies.
