Program Overview

The Latin American Studies Certificate is open to students from any major.

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 coursework and language skills of the Latin American Studies Certificate are applicable to a wide variety of professions.
