Latin American & Caribbean Studies at CofC

Interdisciplinary program at the College of Charleston.

Welcome to the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program (LACS) at the College of Charleston! Housed in the School of Languages, Cultures and World Affairs, the Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program promotes cultural exchange and interdisciplinary research in a key region of today's globalized communities and economies. The Program offers students the opportunity to immerse themselves in the study of the languages, literature, history, politics, art and culture of Latin America and the Caribbean. It allows for faculty members and students coming from a wide range of areas but with a common interest in the region to benefit from an intellectually stimulating trans disciplinary environment.
