University Majors

University of California, Santa Barbara
Latin American and Iberian Studies B.A.

Latin American and Iberian studies at UCSB examines the peoples and cultures of Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries throughout the world. Such study encompasses not only Spain, Portugal, and Latin America, but also Angola, Mozambique, the Philippines, Macao, and the US Chicano and Puerto Rican populations. However, most students center their studies on Latin America. The focus of Latin American and Iberian studies is quite different from the traditional emphasis on language and literature found in a foreign language major. Latin American and Iberian studies examines the whole culture or civilization, not only through the humanities and fine arts, but also through the social sciences and history.
This allows students to explore a variety of topics - in addition to Spanish and Portuguese language and literature - such as Latin American anthropology, the history of Spain and Portugal, and the political life of Latino communities.
