The minor in Latin American Studies is a multidisciplinary program seeking to provide students an in-depth knowledge of Latin American society. The program is designed to foster an understanding of Latin America today through its languages, cultures, history, literatures, and social, economic, and political development. Its faculty accomplish this not only through the courses offered but also through their scholarly research and collaborative participation in the annual colloquium series (open to students, faculty, and the community at large).
