Latin American & Caribbean Studies
For more than 50 years, the Center for Latin American & Caribbean Studies (CLACS) has housed KU's interdisciplinary academic programs on Latin America. CLACS coordinates and supports research and teaching about the region at KU, and conducts educational outreach to teachers and communities throughout the Great Plains.
The Latin America & Caribbean Studies major and minor help you develop cultural flexibility, problem-solving skills, and knowledge of the languages and societies of the Americas. Most majors participate in real-world research through study abroad.
Majors typically study Spanish, Portuguese, Quechua, or Haitian Creole. Nicaraguan Miskitu is available through a summer program.
