The Latin American Studies (LAS) minor enables students to
acquire an in-depth, interdisciplinary understanding of the
culture, economics, environment, history, literature, and politics
of Latin America. It also provides students with the
opportunity to study the experiences of Latinas and Latinos living
in the United States.
Faculty and courses from Environmental
Studies, History, International Studies, Modern Languages,
Political Science, Sociology, Theology & Religious Studies, and
Women Studies contribute to the LAS program. The increasing
integration of the Americas, along with the growing importance of
Latin American immigrants and their descendants in the United
States, heightens the need for well-informed leaders who have a
comprehensive understanding of Latin America and its relationship
with the United States.
Designed to complement a major field
of study, the minor in Latin American Studies helps to prepare
students for employment in a variety of professional and non-profit
fields and for graduate studies in a number of disciplines.
