The interdisciplinary major in Latino and Latin American Studies at University of Connecticut offers an understanding of hemispheric relationships between the peoples and cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean, and those of the United States.


It explores interconnected histories and contemporary economic, social, and political challenges including migration, transnational communities, and economic development. Completion of the B.A. in Latino and Latin American Studies prepares the student for work in government, community agencies, international organizations, business, journalism and communications, or for graduate studies that lead to careers in research and teaching.

Related courses may include Latino and Latin American Studies courses provided that they are cross-listed with another discipline. In addition, intermediate proficiency in a language spoken in Latin America, though not a prerequisite for major study, must be demonstrated for completion of the major for students focusing on Latin America, and proficiency in Spanish is strongly suggested for those focusing on Latinos in the United States.
