Purpose of center:
The Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS) offers a major and minor in Latin American Studies, providing students with a strong grounding in Latin American history, culture, economics, politics and languages. The Center's mission is to foster learning and research across disciplines and geographic boundaries, and to bring the richness of the scholarship on Latin American culture, history, art, language and literature to the larger Rutgers community. We aim to educate, increase awareness and understanding about the region, through course offerings, programs of study, and sponsoring talks and events annually dedicated to Latin American themes. Another aspect of our mission is to offer service opportunities to our students, to create positive encounters between researchers and students across the hemisphere, and to ensure that all of our engagements promote good relations between people in all the countries and regions of the Americas.
CLAS builds linkages across the disciplines, campuses and schools of Rutgers University, including the School Arts and Sciences-New Brunswick, Camden, and Newark; New Brunswick School of Environmental and Biological Sciences; and the Graduate School-New Brunswick
