The program in Latin American studies of the Department of Spanish and Portuguese is dedicated to academic preparation in the areas of literature, political science, social sciences, history, art, and economics. In these domains, the program encourages consideration of philosophies through which Latin America and the United States can maintain a two-way dialogue that contributes to the mutual enrichment of each. Issues of importance include diversity among Latin American countries; the resurgence of violence; and other themes of interest to future intellectuals, politicians, economists, academicians, and specialists in the humanities.
