The Latina/o and Mexican-American Studies (LMAS) Program Initiative started in the Fall 2013 under the jurisdiction of Dr. Yolanda Flores Niemann, Senior Vice-Provost, Provost and VP Academic Affairs of UNT. The initiative will provide students with a competitive edge in a globalized economy, including skills and abilities to understand the diversity, complexity, history, politics, sociology, and culture of LMAS communities. With this new certificate, UNT is responding to this need through programmatic and curricular development. Two Sociology courses (SOCI 4540 Race & Ethnic Minorities; SOCI 4580 Immigration and Race) will be included as electives for undergraduate students completing the LMAS Certificate.
