Latin American and Caribbean Studies

The concentration in Latin American and Caribbean Studies is designed to help students develop an interdisciplinary understanding of culture, history, and contemporary issues in Latin America. Social, political, economic, scientific, literary, and cultural factors combine to explain the Latin American and Caribbean societies of today. The concentration in Latin American and Caribbean Studies provides the opportunity to integrate the methods of various disciplines. Requirements are intentionally broad and flexible to accommodate the interests of students in understanding the diverse reality of Latin America, yet the concentration also encourages focus. Concentration requirements cover four general areas: language, area studies, research, and internship / service work. Competency in Spanish or Portuguese is developed through intermediate and advanced coursework. Many concentrators also study abroad in Latin America and the Caribbean for one or both semesters during their junior year to advance their language skills.

Here's what concentrators from the classes of 2012, 2013, and 2014, reported they were doing in their first year after graduation.
