Latin American Studies Program at SUNY Plattsburgh

Latin American Studies is now over 30 years old at Plattsburgh!

We are a small interdisciplinary program with two outstanding “world class” components: the Model General Assembly of the Organization of American States (an international simulation) and the Latin American Southern Cone Programs (study abroad and student exchanges).

Twenty faculty regularly participate through our meetings, teaching and/or research on Latin America. Courses with Latin American content are taught in Anthropology, Business, Economics, Geography, History, Political Science, Portuguese, Sociology, and Spanish.

During both fall and spring semesters we offer LAS 111 Introduction to Latin America. LAS 111 is also offered as distance learning course through the SUNY Learning Network.

This double major in Latin American studies and Spanish language and literature spent last semester interning for Partners of the Americas (POA). The non-governmental organization helps U.S. states and Latin American and Caribbean countries share knowledge and information on a variety of issues including agriculture, gender equality and politics.
