The curriculum is designed to ensure that students:
- acquire foundational knowledge of Latinx, Latin American, and Caribbean history and cultures;
- develop analytical and critical thinking skills;
- learn the comparative approach to studies of cultures; and
- gain insight into Latinx, Latin American, and Caribbean cultures from a variety of perspectives.
* “Latinx” (La-teen-ex) is an inclusive term used to embrace all gendered and non-gendered identities of peoples with Latin American ancestry. “Latinx” specifically refuses to further silence and erase trans (non-binary and binary), gender non-conforming, non-binary, and genderqueer people.
