What is the Mexican-American program?

Mexican-American Studies, or better referred to as "MAS," is a new field of study (FOS) at San Antonio College.

MAS's mission is to strengthen the next generation's knowledge of Mexican-American communities and to share that information widely.

Students who take MAS courses will develop the ability to work effectively with diverse populations, and will formulate a deep understanding of the Mexican-American culture, history, language and artistic expression.

What courses are offered within MAS? 

Course offerings will vary from semester to semester.

  • Mexican-American History I (HIST 2327)
  • Mexican-American Literature (ENGL 2351)
  • Intermediate Spanish II (SPAN 2312)
  • Mexican-American History II (HIST 2328)
  • Mexican-American Literature (ENGL 2351)
  • Introduction to MAS (HUMA 1305)
  • Mexican-American Politics (GOVT 2311)
  • Any Spanish course
  • Mexican-American Fine Arts Appreciation (HUMA 1311)

 

Who is eligible to take courses with MAS? 

Current, new and returning students are invited to take courses within the MAS field of study.

Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor and/or the MAS Coordinator for information about registering for MAS courses.

What can you do with MAS? 

MAS courses prepare students for jobs in the fields of healthcare, social work, education, law, criminal justice, and business, all fields that will have to provide more and more services to the burgeoning Mexican-American population.

Students interested in pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree can take advantage of SAC's existing articulation agreements with MAS programs at UTSA and OLLU.

In addition, MAS courses can lead to advanced degrees, including a Masters of Arts (M.A), Masters in Social Work (M.S.W.), Juris Doctorate (J.D.) and Doctorate of Philosophy (Ph.D.).
