The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education, Arts and Sciences, along with the history department and the Latin American studies program, will offer a three-credit course on Latin America.
"Latin America Since Independence" will meet from 6 to 9:15 p.m. Tuesdays, Oct. 3-Dec. 19, in Room 233 at the Chippewa Valley Technical College, 620 W. Clairemont Ave., Eau Claire.
The class, which is designed for students, educators and community members with an interest in Latin America, will provide information on the political, economic and cultural development of Latin America from its independence to present day. Primary emphasis will be on Mexico and Brazil. It fulfills one of the humanities and social science course requirements for the UW-Eau Claire Latin American studies major.
David Fleitas, Hispanic/Latino coordinator for UW-Eau Claire's Academic and Career Services, will teach the class.
The course costs $409.86 for three undergraduate credits, $700.35 for three graduate credits, or $108.90 to audit the course. There is no additional fee for UW-Eau Claire students currently enrolled in at least 12 credits if this course keeps them at or below 18 credits.
