About the Program

The major in Latin American and Caribbean Studies fosters intellectual discussion, learning, and research on Latin America and the Caribbean for students seeking an interdisciplinary perspective of the region. There are four main goals:

  1. To develop basic knowledge and comprehension of key themes in Latin American and Caribbean history, cultures, literature, art and contemporary social, economic, and political issues;
  2. To develop abilities to think critically, in an interdisciplinary manner, about Latin American and Caribbean issues, past and present, and to locate them within broader global perspectives;
  3. To develop proficiency in Spanish, Portuguese, and/or French as part of their program of study;
  4. To develop an intimate knowledge of the region and cultural empathy through study or internship abroad.
