Our program allows students to approach Latin American and Latino cultures in all their diversity of expression - not only "high culture" but also folk and other forms, from pre-Columbian times to the present, from Rio de Janeiro to New York and beyond. Ibero-America is a focal point from which undergraduates may reach out toward scholarly research on the pre-Columbian societies of the Americas, Spain and Portugal, the non-Hispanic Caribbean, and Latino communities in the United States. The Latin American and Latino Studies Major is an interdisciplinary major, in which a student's credits are spread across three course clusters: social science, cultural criticism and history.
