The Latin American and Latino Studies Concentration at John Carroll University is multidisciplinary. Bringing together the courses relevant to the study of Latin American culture, social structure, politics, and history, the goal of this concentration is to offer students the opportunity to develop a basic level of expertise in Latin American studies. A student who completes the concentration enhances his or her liberal arts education with a foreign area specialization. Depending upon the particular major, this concentration will prepare a student for advanced study at the graduate level or for a career in business, journalism, government, or private development organizations.

The concentration is administered by the Latin American and Latino Studies Concentration Committee (LASCC). The LASCC is composed of faculty from several departments in the College of Arts and Sciences. The co-coordinators are:

  • Dr. Robert Kolesar, Department of History and the Honors Program director, ext. 4559, rkolesar@jcu.edu

  • Dr. Maria Marsilli, Department of History, ext. 4174, mmarsilli@jcu.edu
