Latin American Studies

The Latin American Studies minor offers students the opportunity to acquire a broad, interdisciplinary understanding of a vast, diverse, fascinating, and crucially important region. In an increasingly interdependent world, it is clear that an understanding of the unique historical, economic, social, political, and cultural dynamics of Latin America as well as insight into the region's particularly complex relationship to the United States, would enhance the academic preparation of students planning careers in social studies and foreign language education, international development, international business, and public service. An understanding of the region's traditions, contributions, and problems would also serve those seeking a comparative basis for analyzing their own society and who wish to comprehend better the aspirations and dynamics of societies other than their own.
