Latin American Studies provides students with a broad understanding of the Latin American experience through an interdisciplinary program of study.
The goals of the major and minor are:
To enable students to acquire in-depth knowledge of the political, economic, historical, and cultural development of the major regions of Latin America: Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean Basin.
To develop students' analytical skills, particularly their ability to understand and evaluate Latin American topics from more than one disciplinary perspective.
To further students' abilities to pursue these goals in Spanish or Portuguese.
