An asset to any career path

A 12-credit certificate in Latin American Studies has been approved for 2017-18; it has no language requirement and requires no immersion time in a Latin American country. It will be very beneficial for students who do not know Spanish or may not be able to pursue further studies in the language but are pursuing careers in fields such as education, nursing, social work, international business and other programs in which knowledge about Latin America and its peoples can be useful.
