The Latino/Latina/Latin American studies immersion allows students to study Latino or Latin American culture. The goal is to introduce students to the customs and culture (history, art, literature, politics, anthropology, music) of Latin America or of Latinos in the U.S. Students become aware of the relationship between language and culture, and of the differences between their own language and culture and those of Spanish-speaking countries or Brazil.
Notes about this immersion:
- This immersion is closed to students majoring in applied modern language and culture who have chosen the Spanish language track, as well as students majoring in international and global studies who have chosen a focus area on Spanish or Portuguese language or Latin American studies.
- Students are required to complete at least one course at the 300-level or above as part of the immersion.
- This immersion consists of three culture courses. If a student chooses, one of the three courses may be substituted for a Spanish or Portuguese language course. Students who have prior study of either language must take a placement exam through the department of modern languages to determine the appropriate level language course to complete.
