What can you do with Latin American Studies?
Latin American Studies is an interdisciplinary program, featuring major and minor options. In an increasingly interconnected world, ideas of confining national boundaries, static cultures, and single-language sufficiency are being transcended. With that in mind, Vanderbilt’s Center for Latin American Studies’ goal is to equip its students with tools that will help them work across both disciplinary and geopolitical borders. CLAS strives to provide solid foundations in the history, politics, culture, additional languages, and economics. When considering your academic track, remember that potential employers may be just as focused on an individual’s versatility of skills and types of achievement as any other measure of education.
