LACS 001 - (CC, IS) Putting Latin America and the Caribbean on the Map: Geography, Politics and Literature

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course is intended to introduce students to the two diverse regions with which North Americans share the Western hemisphere, Latin America and the Caribbean. The course offers a multi-faceted approach to various dimensions of the countries lying to the south of the United States. The geography, history, politics, socioeconomic projects, cultures, languages and literatures of these societies will be analyzed in an interdisciplinary fashion. Students will demonstrate the ability to think critically and creatively, will apply analytical reasoning across academic disciplines, and will demonstrate awareness of Latin American and Caribbean issues in a global context.
