Undergrad Minor Ph.D. Minor Spring '15 Courses Cross-Listed Courses Why Latino Studies?



Latino Studies PhD Minor

This Ph.D. minor in Latino Studies (LATS) allows graduate students in the Social Sciences, Humanities, Sciences, Business, Law, and Education to develop expertise on the historical and contemporary experiences of Latinos in social, cultural, political, and economic contexts.

It addresses the experiences of Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans, Central Americans and other Latin Americans who have immigrated to the United States or who have resided in the U.S. for multiple generations.  Our courses examine Latino communities and experiences within local, national, transnational, and diasporic contexts.
