Latin American Studies Semester Certificate and Program

Each spring semester, the Spanish and Portuguese Department offers a 17-credit immersion program in Latin American Studies and Spanish (LASS). The program combines 9 hours of intensive Spanish with 6 hours of study focusing on geography, history, and culture in Latin America, 2 hours of the LASS Seminar, and a 21 day trip to a Spanish-speaking country.

Successful completion of the program is awarded with a certificate of participation and a waiver of the General Education World Society requirement.

Applications for LASS are received between April and November for the following spring. For information, please visit the program's web site or contact Dr. Hiram Aldarondo, Program Director (215-204-1706) or Dr. Patricia Moore-Martinez (215-204-1707).
