LALS Students

Courses explore relevant themes like archival recovery, civil rights, criminal justice, gender, language use in context, political movements, and representation. Faculty approach these topics using texts, art, film, mainstream and alternative media, and current and historical language usage.

LALS provides valuable training for those pursuing careers in business, criminal justice and law, education, health, public administration, the publishing and media industries, and social work. These expanding career fields seek students who have a solid and critical understanding of the transnational experiences and the contributions of Latin Americans and Latinxs in the United States and abroad.
