Latin American studies at Lewis & Clark enables students to explore this dynamic region in an interdisciplinary way with significant student-faculty interaction. You will take classes in the arts, humanities, sciences, or social sciences with a focused study of Latin American and Latinx history, culture, and contemporary affairs. A major component of the minor is overseas and off-campus studies: you are required to spend at least one semester in one of our programs in Latin America (including an option in the U.S.-Mexico borderlands).


  • I think every class I took here at L&C was challenging, empowering, and allowed me to really engage academically.
