About Us

Latin American Studies at Penn State is a dynamic community of faculty and students built around degree programs, an annual Talks Series, and other related events.  Our program offers three degrees—an undergraduate Major and Minor, and a graduate Minor.  The courses for these degrees are drawn from curricula across the College of Liberal Arts and other colleges, helping Latin American Studies to act as a bridge that connects multiple areas of the university.

The Latin American Studies program is paired with the Latino/a Studies program, and its faculty have home departments across the College of Liberal Arts and in other colleges, including Anthropology, Art History, Communications, Comparative Literature, History, Labor and Employment Relations, Spanish Italian and Portuguese, and Women’s, Gender, and Sexuality Studies.
