The Center for International Studies offers certificates in African, Asian, European, Latin American, and Southeast Asian Studies for students who wish to add an international dimension to their major, or who are interested in an international career or graduate work in area studies. The certificate is noted on your transcript upon graduation.
The Latin American Studies certificate promotes a greater understanding of Latin America through academic coursework and language acquisition. At Ohio University nearly twenty-five faculty members from ten disciplines are dedicated Latin American scholars. The field work they conduct in Ecuador, Mexico, Brazil, Paraguay, Nicaragua, Honduras, and elsewhere in Latin America has produced an impressive list of academic publications. The faculty’s research and experience in the region create an intellectual atmosphere where students are challenged to understand Latin America within a context of regional and global change.
