In an increasingly intercultural world, students in the Latin American Studies program will gain a greater understanding of the intersection of Latin American and American cultures, politics, and business. Taught in Spanish and offering a selection of five different tracks, students will leave the program bi-lingual and uniquely prepared to thrive in the culturally diverse Southwest region of the U.S.
Unlike programs that are predominantly based on social science and taught in English, the BA program in Latin American studies 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.
