Latin American and Iberian Studies

About this program

Latin American and Iberian Studies

Latin American And Iberian Studies (LAIS) is a multidisciplinary program incorporating such diverse disciplines as literature, written arts, political studies, anthropology, history, economics, art history, and architecture. It provides an academic setting for the study of two regions inextricably bound together by historical, cultural, linguistic, economic, and political ties.

Students who enter the LAIS Program emerge with the linguistic and analytical preparation necessary to understand the literatures and cultures of Latin American and Iberian countries; the history of Latin America in the pre-Columbian, colonial, and national periods; the formation of social and economic structures throughout the Latin American and Iberian worlds; the history and ethnography of Mesoamerica and the Andes; contemporary Latin American and Iberian politics; and the Latinx experience in the United States.
