MAS courses are designed to foster critical analysis of intercultural diversity and prepare students to understand and interact with people from diverse backgrounds and cultural perspectives. Whether students originate from Mexican American heritage or not, the program gives all students a deeper understanding of the political and historical context that informs the cultural diversity of the US, particularly Texas. Latina/o and non-Latina/o students alike often reflect that the MAS courses they take open a new, rich world that contextualizes their experiences by giving them a link to their past. The MAS program also supports the creation, celebration, and analysis of artistic works from Mexican American culture, providing a more complete picture of American history.
