The Latin American Studies minor fosters students' understanding and appreciation of Latin American, US-Latino and Caribbean cultures and societies through classes that include disciplines such as Sociology, History, Religious Studies, Literature, and Cultural Studies. Latin America is comprised of more than 20 countries with a population of approximately 600 million people, who exert their influence in the United States in trade, travel, cultural exchange, and immigration. The program couples perfectly with Loyola's study abroad program to Latin America, and it welcomes students at all levels of Spanish-speaking ability.
