Welcome to the guide to information on Chicano and Latino studies!
This guide offers an overview of the specialized research resources at USC on Chicanos, Latinos and other U.S. Hispanics. It also supports the University's undergraduate and graduate Chicano/Latino Studies program, a multidisciplinary program designed to provide students with a critical understanding of the historical, cultural, social, and political experience of Chicanos and Latinos, with a particular emphasis on the development and culture of the Chicano/Latino communities in California and the West, as well as on both historical and contemporary effects of global issues on Chicano/Latino communities.
