The course is not just for college credit anymore. Del Mar College’s Introduction to Mexican-American Studies is now available through DMC’s Continuing Education and covers the salient culture and economic, educational, historical, political and social aspects of the Mexican-American/Chicano(a) experience.

“With the dynamic growth of the Hispanic population and all projections indicating continued growth, Mexican-American Studies courses serve as very practical and useful preparation for careers in all walks of life,” says Elizabeth Flores, DMC professor of political science. “The course is also very enriching.”
