Latin American Studies Degree
The goal of the Latin American Studies degree program is to examine issues related to the region and to the history of the North American Hispanic groups. The field of study brings together the diverse regions of Mexico, Central and South America, and the Caribbean.
Students will find that Latin American culture consists of not only Western but also Chinese, Japanese, African, and pre-Columbian strands and that a great variety of languages are spoken, such as Maya, Zapotec, Quechua, Spanish, Portuguese, French, Papiamento, Patois, and Creole.
The Latin American Studies degree curriculum prepares students to be informed about and sensitive to the needs of the multicultural population of the South and North American continents.
Study Abroad Opportunities
Qualified students in the Latin American Studies degree program may study for a semester or for the whole academic year in selected Latin American or Caribbean universities. Please consult the Center for International Education for further information.
At the junior level, a qualifying student may apply for a Provost Scholarship to study abroad for one semester at an accredited Latin American or Caribbean university.
