The Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program
The University of Washington's Latin American and Caribbean Studies program in the Jackson School of International Studies was established in 1992 and is committed to the advancement of scholarship and applied knowledge about Latin America. Faculty, staff and students work in close collaboration to fulfill the program’s mission through research, interdisciplinary education, experiential and service learning, and community outreach.
The Latin American and Caribbean Studies major has become one of the largest and fastest-growing area studies programs in the School of International Studies. Graduates from this program go on to successful careers in business, government, education, non-governmental organizations, law, and other fields. Many also use the degree as a step toward graduate study in history, business administration, economics, anthropology, and other fields at top universities. The major’s popularity stems from an interdisciplinary curriculum that combines the strengths of regional and comparative international studies with study and research opportunities in specific academic disciplines. Students graduate with both a comprehensive understanding of Latin America and a rich knowledge of the global processes affecting the region and its people. Students can also pursue practical training in a thematic area of choice such as Media Studies, NGO Management, Immigration, or Gender Studies.
