Ne öğreneceğim?

Latin American Studies is an interdisciplinary, area studies major that allows students to combine insights from many related disciplines. The interdisciplinary focus permits students to study the anthropology, economics, geography, history, sociology, languages and cultures of the region to gain a broad understanding of a complex world area.

The Latin American Studies major provides great flexibility to explore a wide range of subjects of particular interest—from religious cults in the Caribbean to indigenous video in the Andes or the dynamics of agrarian reform in rural Mexico.

The flexibility of the major allows the possibility of completing a double major with other departments such as History, Anthropology, or Political Science.

UCR has a strong faculty in Latin American Studies, with more than 45 members drawn from departments across the campus. More than 125 courses taught at UCR have a significant focus on the region. The strength and breadth of the offerings at UCR permit each student to specialize in the particular country or discipline of greatest interest. Students have many opportunities to get involved in research projects with Latin American Studies professors. Students are encouraged to spend time living and studying in Latin America through, for example, Education Abroad.

Career Opportunities

The Latin American Studies major presents numerous opportunities after graduation. The interdisciplinary nature of the program prepares the student for further study in any number of academic fields at the graduate level, including anthropology, geography, history, sociology, Spanish and Portuguese, law, and journalism.

The B.A. degree itself is valuable preparation for many careers, including the U.S. foreign service, nongovernmental development and aid organizations, international organizations, large overseas corporations, banking, foreign missions, journalism and the media, and teaching.
