The Chicano/Latino Studies program at Ohlone College is designed to introduce students to the dynamic and growing field of Chicano/Latino Studies (which includes both Chicana and Chicano/Latino 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!).
