The Latin American and Latino Studies Program at William Paterson University provides students a comprehensive and interdisciplinary academic grounding in the literary, historic, economic, social, political, and cultural traditions and issues. Students will study Latin America and the Latino population residing in the United States in the context of the transnational and multicultural relations. The program prepares students for careers in government, international organizations, private enterprise, journalism and communications, or for graduate study in the humanities, social sciences and law.
