Latin American Studies scholars ask questions such as: How has eco-tourism affected Costa Rica? Why did the Inca Empire fall? How is femininity displayed at Rio de Janeiro’s Carnival?

This program will provide you with a critical understanding of the region through academic study, field schools that take place in Latin America, and training in either the Spanish or Portuguese language.
As a Latin American Studies graduate you'll be prepared for career opportunities in areas such as the civil service, the non-profit sector, and the business world.
