The Latin American & Caribbean Studies Program
Hunter College, The City University of New York

Latin American & Caribbean Studies is an interdisciplinary program that offers students the opportunity to learn about the history, culture, politics, peoples, and economics of the region and its relations with the United States, all within the context of a growing and dynamic Caribbean and Latin American population in New York City. The core courses for the major are drawn from across the social sciences and the humanities and the arts. Students select courses from the major in consultation with the program's director or with a member of the Latin American & Caribbean Studies Committee serving as an advisor. The interdisciplinary specialization of the major serves the program's graduates well, whether they choose to seek employment in public or private organizations, to pursue a professional degree, or to go on for graduate degrees in the social sciences or humanities.

The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program website is undergoing renovation. We hope to have a new, updated site soon. In the meantime, please consult the online catalog for information about the program and majoring in LACS.
