The Latin American and Latino Studies Program offers a major and a minor concentration in Latin American Area Studies and Latino Studies. The program gives students the opportunity to study a full range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches to understanding Latin America and the Caribbean, and the movements and settlement of the peoples and cultures of these regions in the United States. It is a program that combines Latin American studies, Puerto Rican, and Latino ethnic studies.
