Comprising one of the most culturally diverse regions on the planet, the countries that constitute Latin America present a dynamic social, historical, and aesthetic panorama. Offering courses in Anthropology, Art, Architecture, and Design, History, International Relations, Political Science, Sociology, and Spanish, the Latin American Studies (LAS) program at Lehigh University offers students an interdisciplinary approach to the study of Latin America. LAS also features a Predoctoral/Postdoctoral Fellowship, and routinely offers a Latin American Film Series and lectures by LAS faculty and invited speakers.
