Today’s employment landscape is evolving into one that prizes expertise in an increasing number of specialized fields. The Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences program at ASU’s West campus allows students to build a flexible, customized degree that is unique to their specific career goals. For example, a business degree with an emphasis in communications can lead to employment opportunities that aren’t as easily accessed by a traditional business degree alone.
The School of Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies offers a BA in Latin American studies in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at ASU's West campus.
Unlike programs that are predominantly based on social science and taught in English, this program fosters language and cultural knowledge beyond print literature and is unique in its inclusion of the arts and sciences.
The program allows students to immerse themselves in content courses while honing their Spanish language skills, and it provides a broad foundation for students to study Latin America, the United States and the Iberian Peninsula.
Students can choose from five tracks: the arts; narrative (literature and film); history and political science; education and linguistics; and sociology and anthropology.
