The Latin American studies program provides an opportunity for study and research in the cultures, society, history, languages, and politics of Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking nations of Europe and the Americas. The program of study requires the development of reasonable competence in Spanish and/or Portuguese languages and in specialized Latin American fields. The program provides for a teaching and research group of faculty and students in Latin American studies and promotes the publication of scholarly works in this area. Credit applied toward a major in Latin American Studies may not also be computed as part of a departmental major.
Enhancing the program of Latin American Studies at Baylor are summer, semester, or year-abroad Baylor-credit programs in Brazil, Mexico, Spain, Peru, and Argentina. For additional information or for academic advisement, contact the advisor.
