Latin American Studies

A major in Latin American Studies exposes students to the culture, history and politics of a particular world region.

In addition, students study a complementary area and achieve language proficiency in an appropriate language.  All courses are inter-disciplinary, meaning students are exposed to perspectives from the arts, humanities, geography, and social sciences.
