The core curriculum of the Latin American Studies major provides a solid foundation of knowledge on the region, a rigorous interdisciplinary methodology, and language proficiency in Spanish. Flexibility in the major offers you the opportunity to pursue a more specialized topic, region, or discipline of interest. Our students are encouraged to double major or minor in a discipline that supports the focus of the Latin American Studies interdisciplinary major.

The Latin American Studies major consists of a minimum of 9 courses taken in the Department of Hispanic Studies and in other Connecticut College departments and programs that offer courses on Latin America.
