Latin American Studies Program
The Latin American Studies program was established at Bucknell University in 1975, as an interdisciplinary program of area studies in the humanities and social sciences. The program comprises 17 faculty from 10 departments and programs, whose research and teaching focuses on the 43 nations and territories in the Western hemisphere south of the continental United States, as well as Latin Americans within the United States, our nation's largest minority.
