We live in an emerging global society where Latina/o and Latin American voices are becoming more and more significant. Latina/os 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 Latina/o 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.
