Latina/o Studies Concentration, Latin America and Latino Studies (BA)

Menu

The Latina/o Studies concentration allows students to choose from an array of intellectually challenging, multidisciplinary courses that introduce cutting-edge scholarship on the Latina/o populations of the United States. Our courses familiarize students with the nation's fast-growing, diverse, transnational Latina/o populations, including their histories, ongoing connections to Latin America, cultures, and social conditions. Courses offer students the opportunity to focus on individual Latina/o communities in the country and to engage in comparative analysis of the various Latina/o communities. Students can select courses that concentrate on current socioeconomic and political issues facing Latinos in the U.S., as well as others that capture Latina/o expression in literature, music, and the arts. Some courses in this concentration involve students in collaborative projects with Chicago based Latina/o community organizations, civic programs, and other service learning opportunities.
