Latin American & Caribbean Studies Program

The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program is a holistic and interdisciplinary field of study that explores the diverse cultures, history, ideologies, languages, literatures, natural environment, and political economy of Latin America and the Caribbean as well as the challenges facing this critical region in the 21st century.

Cultural Immersion

Latin American & Caribbean studies majors and minors are encouraged to experience cultural immersion by participating in one of Rollins’ overseas programs to the region.

About The Program

Latin America and the Caribbean are important in a local and national sense because of the region’s many connections to Florida and the United States. Latin America and the Caribbean are also critical in a global sense because of its rising economic and geopolitical significance.

The program is designed to educate students for global citizenship and responsible leadership, and to prepare graduates for productive careers in business, government, and other professions. Students majoring in Latin American and Caribbean Studies are expected to:
  • Demonstrate a breadth and depth of knowledge of 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.
  • Achieve competence in Spanish, Portuguese or French.
