The supplemental major and minor in Latino Studies engage students with the latest research and analysis on the diverse Latino population in fields such as American studies, anthropology, history, literature, political science, sociology, and theology.
Each semester, the Institute for Latino Studies offers a wide array of undergraduate courses that range from classroom lectures and seminars to community-based, service-learning courses in the local Latino community of South Bend. ILS also offers annual summer service-learning courses in Chicago, Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., and Puerto Rico.
In addition, students in either the supplementary major or minor programs may opt to do a Senior Thesis in Latino Studies. More than 30 affiliated faculty at the ILS, in a variety of fields, are willing to assist you in your research endeavors.
