Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS)

Core Faculty:
Professor Barnett*, Mayock
Assistant Professors Botta, Dickovick, Eastwood, González, Lepage

The Program in Latin American and Caribbean Studies is an interdisciplinary program that allows students to explore the concepts of civilization, culture, and society as applied to the region of Latin America and the Caribbean. The program’s curriculum draws from a variety of disciplines—including art history, literature, economics, politics, and sociology—in an effort to explore the ways the region has been shaped by the meeting of Amerindian, African, and European peoples. The program aims to teach students about the commonalities and diversity within the region. Students will consider how these factors complement or differ from North American society.

Students who complete the minor can gain the background necessary for careers in teaching, bilingual education, social work, government or international organizations, business, journalism, and specialized nonprofit organizations, and/or for graduate work in Latin American Studies and related disciplines.
