Latin American Studies

The Latin American Studies Program offers students a variety of courses on the cultures, literature, music, history, politics, and geography of Latin American, Caribbean and Latinx peoples. It brings together disciplines that span the social sciences and the humanities, and also touches the fine arts, in a cohesive plan of study. The program provides students with a broad understanding of the intersectionality of identities constructed between Latin America, the Caribbean and the United States.

The major offers a well-rounded introduction to Latin American, Caribbean and Latinx cultures from a variety of perspectives along with providing students with Spanish-speaking skills. The major combines a core of common courses with a field of concentration of the student's choice and a closely supervised senior thesis. The minor gives an overview of culture, literature, history, and politics, while allowing the student to emphasize the aspect of Latin American, Caribbean and Latinx studies most relevant to her needs and interests.
