The Department of Latin American and Latino Studies offers work leading to the Master of Arts in Latin American and Latino Studies. The mission of the Master of Arts in Latin American and Latino Studies is to offer an interdisciplinary perspective to the study of both contemporary Latin American societies and of historical minorities and immigrants of Latin American descent living in the United States. This program emphasizes the histories and experiences of Latin American people as they enter into a transnational dialogue that defines both American and Latin American identities, cultures, economies, and politics in the 21st century. The program encourages an interdisciplinary approach that ranges across the social sciences, humanities, cultural studies, and history.
