Welcome

 

The Latin American and Latino Studies (LALS) Program offers an interdisciplinary major and minor to study the history, arts, languages, cultures, societies, politics, and/or regional organizations of Latin American and Caribbean countries as well as Latino communities and individuals in the United States. With courses offered across many departments in the School of Arts and Sciences, in study abroad programs taught throughout Latin American cities, and with academically based community service courses with Latino organizations in the Greater Philadelphia area, the LALS major and minor afford our students a very comprehensive approach to Latin American and Latino Studies as well as the possibility of a flexible curriculum, in which students can pursue and combine their academic interests.
