The Mexican American Studies Department offers the interdisciplinary major in Mexican American Studies that leads to a Bachelor of Arts degree. The department also offers a minor and a certificate in Mexican American Studies.
The BA in Mexican American Studies requires a minimum of 36 semester hours, of which at least 18 will be advanced. The major also requires a minor in any OLLU-approved field, although students majoring in Mexican American Studies are encouraged to complete the requirements for a second ("double") major.
In addition to the Mexican American Studies Department, Our Lady of the Lake University's Center for Mexican American Studies and Research is a rich resource of valuable historic documents and information that include the Old Spanish Missions Historicial Research Collection and the Mexican American Collection.
