Latin American Studies Concentration

This concentration is not longer available for students entering in 2021-2022. Students interested in Latin American cultures and societies should look into the Hispanic Studies Program


Latin American Studies at Illinois Wesleyan University is an interdisciplinary program that strives to understand the cultures and societies of Latin America.


Our concentrations include coursework in anthropology, economics, history, language, literature, music, political science, religion and sociology, and hope to provide students with ways to examine issues of class conflict, ethnicity, gender, religion and cultural expression in Latin America.



As a requirement for the major, students spend at least one semester abroad in a program with a Latin American Studies component.
