Latin American & Caribbean Studies

Enter a holistic and interdisciplinary field of study that explores the diverse cultures, history, languages, literatures, natural environment, and political economy of LatinAmerica and the Caribbean as well as the challenges facing this critical region in the 21st century.

As a major, you will

  • explore the forces that have shaped the region of Latin America and the Caribbean;
  • learn to think critically about a region that is deeply connected to, but also distinct from, (North) American society; and
  • achieve competence in Spanish, Portuguese or French.

You also have the opportunity to experience cultural immersion by participating in one of Rollins' overseas programs to the region.
