UCF’s Latin American Studies programs promote an understanding of Latin America and the Caribbean as well as Latino/Hispanic populations of the United States. The program includes a strong emphasis on community education and involvement. UCF offers both a bachelor’s degree in Latin American Studies and interdisciplinary minor in Latin American Area Studies.
Our mission is to provide students with the necessary tools and relevant knowledge to understand, study, and work with Hispanic populations. Students will gain a broad and thorough understanding of the Americas in terms of their historical, cultural, social, economic, and political dimensions.
