About Latin American Studies

Do you have an interest in the Latin America region and its diaspora? The interdisciplinary major in Latin American Studies will offer you great flexibility in choosing courses about Latin America in the humanities and social sciences. This major can prepare you to pursue a professional career in fields such as business, education, journalism and media, international relations, law, non-governmental work, planning and public policy, public health and social work, or for graduate study in Latin American studies or in one of the related disciplines.

In recent years, Latin American Studies students have participated in service-learning programs learning about topics ranging from anthropology and human rights, to education, health, and sustainability, in places such as: Córdoba, Argentina; Cochabamba, Bolivia; Oaxaca, Mexico; Cuzco, Peru; the Costa Rican rainforest, and the Guatemalan highlands.

You can also take advantage of traditional academic semester and year-long programs in Latin American and the Caribbean, including Argentina, Barbados, Brazil, Bolivia, Cayman Islands, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Cuba, Mexico, and Spain.
