Opportunities

What special opportunities exist for CHLX Majors?

  • All CHLX majors (and minors) will get to complete an internship focused on Latinx advocacy and/or activism, while taking a companion course. The real-life experience in an organization, program or business prepares you more for working after graduation—and makes your resume stand out! And not many majors have an actual internship course, where you get pointers on how to apply your knowledge in practical ways, and you get to share and brainstorm about challenges you face.  

  • You will take part in a senior research seminar, completing a project in consultation with a professor; you can apply for Honors in the major, where you get to do a more ambitious project. 

  • We have an annual speaker series, as well as co-sponsored events throughout the year that highlight important Latinx people, movements, and events. You can gain a lot of leadership and planning experience by getting involved. 

  • Our major is very intersectional, so you will learn about a wide range of Latinx people and communities. We have a commitment to addressing peoples and communities who are marginalized within the Latinx community and not always included in Chicanx/Latinx courses (e.g. Black, undocumented, LGBT, and more).  

  • Advising in CHLX is very one-on-one and holistic. We care about who you are, where you’ve been, and where you want to go. 

  • All majors and minors complete an internship focused on advocacy and/or activism, while taking a companion course. The real-life experience in an organization, program or business prepares you more for life after graduation. 

  • All students take part in a senior research seminar, completing a project in consultation with a professor.  

  • Our annual speaker series features nationally known scholars and activists. 

  • Every semester MCGS hires several of our students to serve as tutors for our classes. 
     

  • Outstanding students are chosen for the MCGS Ambassadors program each year. 

  • Our students are eligible to apply for several awards and scholarships exclusively for MCGS majors and minors.
