The Chicano Studies program at Ohlone College is designed to introduce students to the dynamic and growing field of Chicano Studies (which includes both Chicana and Chicano Studies, also referred to as Chicana/o Studies), an interdisciplinary field of study that uses History, Law, Political Science, Anthropology, Sociology, Literature, Ethnomusicology, Theater, and a host of other disciplines; to study and interpret the complex and diverse experiences of Chicana/os and Latina/os.
As introductory survey courses, students entering Chicana/o Studies courses are not required to know much about the field of Chicana/o Studies, nor to know much about the people called Chicanas/os (even if you are of Chicana/o or Latina/o descent!).
