Certificate in Latin American Studies

With a diverse geography and multifaceted culture, students will enrich their lives and develop new points of view through our Latin American Studies program. The Certificate in Latin American Studies (LAS) seeks to introduce students to a better understanding and awareness of the cultures and civilizations in the region.

The curriculum of the Certificate in LAS offers students the opportunity to acquire specialized knowledge of the region and its languages, to be informed and sensitive to its many resources and needs, and to understand how this region is both affecting other parts of the world and being affected by them.

As a "stand-alone" certificate, it is also appropriate for those students with a strong interest in Latin America and who have completed a BA or BS at another institution but who are not currently considering graduate or professional school.
