Program Information
The Latino and Latin American Studies Program (LLAS) seeks to engage CWU students, faculty, staff, and local communities in a study of Latino and Latin American experiences, peoples, and cultures. 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 extremely valuable for those pursuing careers in business, government, social work, law and justice, and teaching that require engagement with Latino communities in the United States, as well as for those who wish to travel and work 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.

Course Offerings
