The program is built on a foundation of cross-disciplinary learning communities focused on themes of culture, society, cinema, economic development and politics. The result is a major strong in required courses yet flexible enough to offer students many choices in each theme area. Innovative aspects include interdisciplinary teaching, travel/culture courses, internships, and civic engagement.

The program has a unique network of partnerships with consulates, museums, and businesses that provide enriching opportunities, such as field trips and guest lectures.

The program allows students to use New York’s status as a center of Latin culture, business, and economy to career-building advantage. Students may double major in select programs, an option that permits sharing of 21 credits, thereby making degree completion possible in a relatively short period.
