Chicana and Chicano Studies Minor

The Chicana and Chicano Studies minor complements study in another traditional field. Students participating in the minor are required to complete both a departmental major in another discipline and the Chicana and Chicano Studies minor.

To enter the minor, students must have an overall grade-point average of 2.0 or better, have completed 45 units, and file a petition with the student adviser in 7351 Bunche Hall.

Required Lower-Division Courses (10 units): Chicana and Chicano Studies 10A, 10B.

Required Upper-Division Courses (20 units minimum): Chicana and Chicano Studies 101 and four elective courses (20 units minimum) selected from the approved list (available in the department office each term).

A minimum of 20 units applied toward the minor requirements must be in addition to units applied toward major requirements or another minor.

Each minor course must be taken for a letter grade, and students must have an overall grade-point average of 2.0 or better in the minor. Successful completion of the minor is indicated on the transcript and diploma.
