The Latina/o Studies Program (LLS) offers a Minor and a Graduate Specialization. As an academic interdiscipline, Latina/o Studies offers critical analysis of the experiences, histories, literatures, arts, and cultures of the multiethnic, multiracial, and multilingual population of Latina/os in the U.S. Attentive to the ways that power and difference impacts Latinas/os in multiple spheres, Latina/o Studies courses prepare students to engage critical issues of our day with knowledge and research.
Latina/o Studies is a part of the Center for Ethnic Studies in the Humanities Institute at OSU. Students in this Minor or GIS will also gain experience in varied disciplines. Jointly with other CES programs, we explore the interconnections and intersections among varied racialized and ethnic groups in the U.S. We also, therefore, contribute to the educational need to prepare students to fully participate in contemporary U.S. and global society.
