Enroll in history. Through Open University, you can take space-available classes in Latina/Latino Studies this summer — without formal admission to SF State.

The Latina/Latino Studies Seed: Planted in 1969

Participate in a long and powerful legacy of students committed to education and social justice. SF State’s Latina/Latino Studies Department is the first of its kind on any four-year college campus. The Latina/Latino Studies Department (originally Raza Studies) was established in the fall of 1969, as part of the College of Ethnic Studies, after the longest student strike in the history of the United States. From November 1968 through April 1969, the Black Student Union, the Third World Liberation Front, select staff and faculty, and members from the larger Bay Area community organized and led a series of actions against systematic discrimination.
