Latin American Studies Concentration

Bringing together the courses relevant to the study of Latin American culture, social structure, religion, politics, literature, and history, this concentration seeks to enhance a student's liberal arts education through the attainment of a basic level of expertise in Latin American studies. Depending on the particular major, Latin American Studies prepares students for advanced studies or for a career in business, journalism, government, or non governmental organizations related to this crucial region of the world.

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

While requirements are flexible to accommodate students with different interests and majors, the concentration allows and encourages a focus.

Requirements:

A. Core of the concentration: except for SP 301, each course must be from the list of approved courses.

  1. SP 301 (along with satisfaction of its prerequisites)
  2. At least three courses from History and Political Science, with at least one course from both of those disciplines
  3. At least one course must be HS 274, PO 254, or SP 314

B. Electives of the concentration

  1. Nine hours of other courses from the list of approved courses or accepted by the LASCC through petition. For a list of courses that may be used to satisfy the requirements for completion of the concentration, please see either of the LASCC coordinators.

Coordinators: Dr. María Marsilli, Department of History; Dr. Dwight Hahn, Department of Political Science.
