General Program Information

The Latino and Latin American Studies (LLAS) program seeks to engage CWU students, faculty, staff and local communities in a study of Latino and Latin American experiences, peoples and cultures. Most importantly, the LLAS minor provides students with broad, interdisciplinary training in the economic, social, political and cultural realities of Latino and Latin American peoples. The minor will be useful to those with career interests in business, government, social work, and teaching, and those who wish to travel in Latin America. Moreover, the Latino and Latin American Studies minor may also serve as preparation for graduate study in multiple academic or professional fields.
