Latin American Studies
explores a region of vast
importance to our nation
EL MUNDO HISPANO
Students investigate in depth this neighboring region of the world with significant diplomatic, economic and cultural ties with the United States, and from which more than 50 million U.S. citizens have come. A period of study in a Latin American country is highly encouraged.
Among other hands-on projects, at home and abroad, in which you’ll have the opportunity to participate is Language in Motion, a pilot program in Spanish language and culture at New Jersey high schools. Advanced students may pursue independent study projects in their area of interest.
The minor crosses many disciplines, from Spanish to political science to women’s and gender studies. Courses are taught by faculty who have devoted their careers to study and discussion of this region and its history, language and culture.
Professor of anthropology
I’d call myself a total tangential thinker. It is hard to stay on any single line of thought when you are an archaeologist. Everything connects with everything. That includes the work I’m doing with students on unexplained archaeological sites in Ecuador.
