Since 1970, the mission of the Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) has been to serve Texas and the nation as a leader in the intellectual development of Mexican American studies. The establishment of CMAS represents an institutional recognition of the importance of the Mexican American people in the history of the United States.
CMAS accomplishes its mission by offering an undergraduate degree program, a master’s degree program, and a graduate portfolio program for masters and doctoral students. In addition, CMAS engages in community outreach efforts throughout the academic year that include hosting various lecture series, organizing an extensive public programming calendar, and fostering a variety of community and research partnerships.
The Eighteenth Annual CMAS Graduation Ceremony will take place on Saturday, May 17, 2014, in the Auditorium (1.402) of the Student Activity Center (SAC).
The Center for Mexican American Studies (CMAS) will host pláticas for six students in the Graduate Portfolio Program in Mexican American Studies in the spring semester 2014.
