Latin American Studies
Cross disciplinary borders while exploring this vibrant, influential, culturally significant and critically important region of the world.
The traditions of Latin America - from the southern border of the United States to the tip of South America and the Caribbean islands - represent a richly diverse mixture of indigenous, African and European colonial influences. Immerse yourself in the history, literature, politics and languages of Latin America in the classroom or beyond, absorbing the culture firsthand in one of Emmanuel's many study-abroad programs.
