Latinx & Latin American Studies

A portion of the mural “Presencia de América Latina,” by Jorge González Camarena (Mexican), 1964-65.

Through an interdisciplinary course load, students who major in Latinx and Latin American Studies will critically examine the diverse histories and cultures of Latin America, the Caribbean and U.S. Latinxs. Majors will complete, in any department, a course on U.S. Latinxs, a course on Latin America, a course on the Caribbean and two courses taught in languages spoken in Latin America and the Caribbean. Required coursework also include a research/methods seminar.
