University Majors


California State University, Chico
Latin American Studies B.A.

Latin American cultures encompass music, dance, food, the arts, religion, and strong familial traditions. Against this vibrant cultural backdrop, Latin America is trying to live down a history of underdevelopment, dependency, and inequality. Fledgling democracies across the region are pursuing various ways to address these deeply rooted problems, ranging from neo-liberal capitalism to socialism and populism.

Latin American Studies offers a major and a minor that provide an interdisciplinary perspective on this vibrant and diverse region of the world, with a special focus on Mexico and Central America. A major or minor in Latin American Studies is a valuable complement to a major in such related fields as anthropology, foreign language, geography, history, international relations, and political science.

The Latin American Studies program allows you to study with experts in the region from departments across the campus. It can help prepare you for a variety of careers in our rapidly globalizing world, including business, education, journalism, sustainable development, recreation and travel. In addition, it can enhance your job opportunities with both government and non-governmental agencies.
