About our students

Students in the Latin American Studies program come from diverse backgrounds.  Many already have cultural ties to a country in Latin America and are fluent in either Spanish or Portuguese.  Others are drawn to the breadth of interdisciplinary topics covered within the program.  Above all, our students share a profound interest in studying the lands and cultures of Latin America. 

Alumni have pursued careers in government, journalism, international law, museums and cultural institutions, K-12 education, higher education, tourism, social work, and graduate work related to the field.
