Latin American Studies
From Mexico to Argentina to islands in the Caribbean, Latin America is bursting with culture. This dynamic, diverse region is home to 33 countries and a population of about 600 million; you’ll hear Spanish and Portuguese and meet people with a range of backgrounds. Wheaton’s Latin American studies minor will deepen your understanding of these histories and cultures, the relations between these countries, and their influence around the world. The Latin American studies minor is an excellent companion to majors like Hispanic studies, Spanish, and international relations.
