Chicano/Latino Studies Majors Study Abroad


Why study Chicano/Latino
Studies abroad?
"Chicano/Latino Studies students should make time in their schedules to participate in EAP. Studying abroad, and particularly studying in the Mexico-U.S. Comparative Perspectives Program in Mexico City, offers CLS students the opportunity to study and to experience the roots of the migration experience which is central to understanding the contemporary Chicano/Latino experience.  Studying abroad ensures that students will be able to thrive in new and challenging environments.  As importantly, the EAP experience allows students to live abroad and make cross-national connections while progressing toward their UCI degrees."

-Professor Louis Desipio

Chicano/Latino Studies encourages majors to consider:


Students automatically receive 1 general education course for Cat. VIII for studying abroad for 1 quarter in any country.

Chicano/Latino Studies majors have the flexibility of choosing to study abroad for a year, semester, or summer during any year they are a student at UCI (freshman-senior). Check with your academic counselor for guidance.
