Photo   Latin American Studies

The Latin American Studies program is an interdisciplinary program, meaning we offer an array of courses from different academic departments. You can study anthropology, economics, geography, political science, Spanish or Portuguese, literature, history, and much more! Southern California is strongly linked, both culturally and economically, with the countries of Latin America. By offering in-depth, interdisciplinary approach to this fascinating region, the major in Latin American Studies provides an excellent foundation for the ever-increasing number of career possibilities. Whether your long-term objective is international employment in Latin America, working within one of California's Hispanic communities, or preparation for graduate school, the Latin American studies major provides a solid academic foundation. By pursuing a broad yet in-depth course of study, Latin American Studies students are well equipped to enter many fields and occupations as teachers in the United
States or Latin America, as business people sensitive to Latin American history and culture, or as journalists, lawyers, and doctors where contact with Latin America or Latin Americans in the United States is important.
