The LACLAS, unlike many other Latin American programs, includes the study of the Latino communities in the United States. This degree is designed for students interested in teaching, business, government service, and international development. Dr. Paul J. Dosal, specialist in the history of Central America and the Caribbean, will coordinate the graduate program and teach the core seminars. The two-semester seminar sequence will provide graduate students with a common orientation for interdisciplinary studies and research. In addition, LACLAS students will take classes in participating departments to fulfill their requirements in major and minor fields of concentration.
