Guam - For the first time ever, the University of Guam offers a historic Chamorro studies major.

Kicking off earlier this month, a launch event is set for Thursday, October 24th at the Humanities and Social Sciences Building.

The all day event will feature poetry readings, musical performances, and writing workshops as well as speaker Tun Jack Lujan, an internationally recognized master of Chamorro culture.

The Chamorro studies major is a track within the Pacific-Asia Studies in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences. Students who major in Chamorro studies will become fluent in both reading and writing the Chamorro language as well as learn the Chamorro history and culture.
