The Latin American Studies Department

Latin American Studies is an interdisciplinary program that emphasizes analytical approaches to the culture, history, society and political economy of the region. The major provides significant preparation to students pursuing careers in public policy, law, business, social work, education, international relations and advanced research.

The major is designed to offer interdisciplinary training in the major areas of Latin American culture, combining language study, the humanities and the social sciences. Core courses in history, literature and politics develop a base for understanding the life of the region. Latin American Studies majors also choose electives from a list that includes offerings in art, economics and sociology, and additional work in the core disciplines.

The major culminates in a senior exercise in which the student synthesizes and applies coursework to present a comprehensive interpretation of selected topics in Latin American Studies.
