Latino and Latin American Studies 

Description

Latino and Latin American Studies (LLAS) is an interdisciplinary academic program that focuses on the Latin American culture region, including Latinos in the United States. LLAS draws on the social sciences and humanities to promote greater understanding and appreciation of Latino and Latin American cultures, histories, social issues, experiences and landscapes. Toward this goal, LLAS offers an interdisciplinary minor, organizes educational events and collaborates with other campus and community organizations.
