Latin American Studies

The South Carolina Latin American Studies Program is an interdisciplinary, broadly based undergraduate degree program that offers courses in Latin American history, politics, anthropology, geography, and literature.

Students can select from an array of courses that enable them to explore Latin America from a variety of perspectives while also having the opportunity to focus their studies on a particular field. The minor in Latin American Studies richly complements majors in many other fields, including Anthropology, Business, Geography, Global Studies, Political Science, History, Journalism, and Spanish.

In keeping with its mission of fostering campus and community awareness of issues related to Latin America, the program sponsors public lectures, workshops, and symposia, and supports faculty and student research on topics related to Latin America and Latino communities in South Carolina. For more information, contact the Director of the Latin American Studies Program, Dr. Gabrielle Kuenzli.
