The goal of the Latin American Studies 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 major prepares students to be informed about and sensitive to the needs of the multicultural population of the North and South American continents.
