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. For more information, visit Northeastern’s Career Development Center.
