Latin American & Caribbean Studies

Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS) at Hofstra University offers a wide array of courses on Latin America, the Caribbean, and related diasporas in the United States. This interdisciplinary program features courses from departments throughout the University, and it also offers senior seminars and opportunities for independent course work and study abroad.

By studying the geography, politics, economies, histories, cultures, and literatures of Latin American and Caribbean countries, LACS majors develop a solid knowledge of the region and its relations with both the United States and Europe. This knowledge is indispensable in this modern era of integrated economies and societies increasingly shaped by immigration and the coexistence of diverse cultures.

An LACS major or minor would be an asset to any student planning a career in business, law, communications, travel, government, non-government agencies, environmental organizations and other areas.
