Each spring semester, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese offers a Latin American Studies Semester (LASS) immersion program. Students who successfully complete the LASS program may be awarded a Certificate in Latin American Studies and a waiver of the General Education World Society requirement. The 17-credit Certificate in Latin American Studies combines 9 credit hours of intensive Spanish language with 8 credit hours of study focusing on geography, history, and culture in Latin America and a 21-day trip to a Spanish-speaking country.
Certificates are awarded only at the time of completion of the bachelor's degree and cannot be awarded either as a stand-alone program of study or after completion of the first bachelor's degree.
