Latin American Studies
Latin American Studies Program
Latin American Studies is an interdisciplinary degree providing a foundation for understanding the Latin American region through cultural anthropology, history, geography, language, and literature, among other disciplines. Students will gain language skills and area competences that are valuable in business, public service and/or further professional training.
This two year degree program is designed for transfer to Latin American Studies programs at the University of New Mexico or New Mexico State University. The CNM Latin American Studies program is currently undergoing a process of revision, in conjunction with UNM's Latin American and Iberian Institute (LAII). Among the new offerings will be a LAS 1110 course (Intro to Latin American Studies) and new interdisciplinary Study Abroad programs. Stay tuned for the latest developments!
