Program Overview

The Global Studies–Latin America major promotes a greater understanding of Latin America through academic coursework and language acquisition.  At Ohio University nearly 25 faculty members from 10 disciplines are dedicated Latin American scholars. The field work they conduct in Ecuador, Mexico, Brazil, Paraguay, Nicaragua, Honduras, and elsewhere in Latin America has produced an impressive list of academic publications. The faculty’s research and experience in the region create an intellectual atmosphere where students are challenged to understand Latin America within a context of regional and global change. The interdisciplinary nature of this major is applicable to a wide variety of professions.

Majors are required to complete three years of Spanish or Portuguese language courses and study abroad or intern in Latin America. Students must consult with their advisor and the Office of Global Opportunities before committing to an internship or study abroad program.
