LAS 301 Introduction to Latin American Studies
LAS 301 Introduction to Latin American Studies 3
This course explores Latin America from a variety of perspectives: sociological, political, theological, artistic and literary. It includes an historical survey of Latin America from the earliest times to the present. Given the fact that this course is being taught at the Costa Rica Center, it gives special emphasis to Costa Rica and Central America. Nevertheless, the course will contain examples and will cover themes that pertain to much of Latin America and the Caribbean. This course will also deal with U.S. foreign relations with Latin America, including NAFTA, CAFTA and other trade agreements. Offered every fall and spring semesters at Costa Rica Center. Recommended HI 127 or HI 181 prior to taking IDS 301. Also listed as IDS 301.
