LAS Undergraduate Students

Students earning a major or minor in Latin American Studies are diverse. Some come to the program because they are drawn to better understand their family's history, others because of a professional interest in gaining cultural competency - and many for both.

We reached out and asked our current students to share their experiences with us and tell us more about what drew them to the program. Read their profiles below (from current and recent students) to find out why they're in the LAS program and where they see themselves in five years.
