Program Overview

The Latin American Studies certificate promotes a greater understanding of Latin America through academic coursework and language acquisition.  At Ohio University nearly 25 faculty members from 10 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.
