Undergraduate studies leading to the bachelor of arts degree have been designed to provide both a general, broad-based knowledge of Latin America, through the core curriculum required of all majors, and an opportunity for each student to pursue a more specialized area of interest. Students should consult the LLILAS undergraduate adviser concerning the fulfillment of coursework requirements common to all majors and the development of an area of special emphasis or concentration within the major. In many cases, a semester of approved study at a Latin American university can be included in the degree program. LLILAS maintains linkages with a number of leading institutions of the region to facilitate study abroad.
