Mexico, The Americas, and Spain (MAS) draws on the rich Hispanic culture and resources of San Antonio as well as Trinity's proximity to Mexico and Latin America. Supported by a critical mass of more than 30 faculty across the spectrum of disciplines who can teach in Spanish, this unique program seeks to train future leaders for involvement in the MAS world. It provides students with unparalleled opportunities for engagement with the language, life, and culture of Mexico, the Americas, and Spain.
The program draws extensively on the rich Hispanic culture and resources of San Antonio as well as Trinity's proximity to Mexico and Latin America. MAS provides students from all majors a continuum of experiences throughout the undergraduate years that includes internships in Spain, conferences in Mexico, collaboration with students from the Monterrey Institute of Technology, as well service learning trips and study abroad. On-campus opportunities include the annual Álvarez Seminar, two locally focused first-year seminars, and $1000 stipends for Trinity students who complete unpaid internships at local non-profit organizations that work with the Latino community.
All of the MAS opportunities are designed to hone Spanish language skills and deepen cultural understanding while providing a wealth of real world experiences that advance postgraduate options.
