The LLACS Minor
Latinx, Latin American, and Caribbean Studies (LLACS) Program

This program’s objective is to prepare intellectual leaders, foment future scholars, and the next generation of local and global citizens. Critical to the LLACS program is understanding how the Americas are connected by shared histories, cultures, political processes, economic currents, migration patterns, social practices and beliefs. Students in this program will develop critical analytic skills and explain how these dynamic processes manifest themselves in the fields of Anthropology, History, Language, Literature, Sociology, Philosophy, Political Science, and Religion. In this program students will demonstrate their understanding of these processes by writing reflection papers, essays, and research papers as well as presenting their research orally. Students will also reflect on these issues by participation in a Dialogue of Civilization.
