About this Program

The certificate in Latin American Studies will enrich students' understanding and appreciation of Latin American culture, communication, language, music, and art. This program is appropriate for citizens in an increasingly diverse society and for individuals entering or currently employed in positions in education, business, criminal justice, and other occupations where an understanding of Hispanic culture enhances their abilities in the workplace. Students will have an opportunity to study the cultural, historical, political, economic religious, and social realities of Mexico, Central and South America to gain a better understanding of the Hispanic impact on the United States and the growing Latino population in Minnesota.
