Enriching the Latin American Studies Program

Faculty development and the expansion of the Latin American Studies program at LaGuardia Community College.

This project will strengthen and deepen Latin American Studies at LaGuardia by providing faculty with opportunities to develop and expand their knowledge of the humanities in Latin America and thus increase and improve the range of courses offered. The Latin American Studies option is an interdisciplinary curriculum housed in the Departments of Humanities (art, music, film, philosophy, and theater), Education and Language Acquisition (modern language and literature), and Social Science (history). Expanding Latin American Studies is important at LaGuardia as forty-one percent of its student body is of Hispanic background and the majority of the college’s international students come from a Latin American or Caribbean country. Offering a curriculum that reflects the students’ diverse origins will help improve student success and increase students' engagement with the humanities.
