The Latin American Studies Program provides a minor course of study that offers the opportunity to study the Latin American nations from an interdisciplinary perspective, which emphasizes critical approaches to the study of history, political systems, culture, social structures, economic development, and literary and artistic expression of the region. In addition, the increasing importance of the Hispanic migration into the United States makes this program very relevant to modern American culture and political institutions. Students who earn this minor will be better prepared for careers in international business, public service, human resources, and graduate studies in history, political science, and public administration.
