We live in an emerging global society where Latino and Latin American voices are becoming more and more significant. Latinos constitute the largest U.S. ethnic minority and Latin America is among the most important U.S. trading partners. This means that graduates with a degree in Latino and Latin American Studies have unique opportunities for careers in national and international settings, in the private and public sector and in research organizations and the U.S government.

Our LLAS-101 Introduction to Latino and Latin American Studies course fulfills a Social/Behavioral requirement for the NEIU General Education Program.
The Latino and Latin American Studies program sponsors events that promote its mission and enrich the University community. We often co-sponsor events with other campus programs that share our values and mission.
