Dyson College of Arts and Sciences, Latin American Studies, BA

The B.A. in Latin American Studies (LAS) is a dynamic interdisciplinary program of course offerings from various Liberal arts and Social Science subject areas, including Language Proficiency, History, Literature, Culture, Economy, and Society. Its purpose is the development of versatile bilingual professionals and area specialists who are equipped to meet the challenges of a complex global economy.

This program is built on a foundation of cross-disciplinary learning communities focused on themes of culture, society, cinema, economic development and politics. Innovative aspects include interdisciplinary teaching, travel/culture courses, internships, and civic engagement. Moreover, a unique network of partnerships with consulates, museums, and businesses provides enriching opportunities such as field trips and guest lectures, thereby allowing students to use New York's status as a center of Latin culture, business, and economy to career-building advantage. A double major in select programs, an option that permits sharing of 21 credits, is available, and students who elect this option will find favor with prestigious employers and graduate schools.
