Undergraduate Programs

Any undergraduate student at the University of Pittsburgh may enroll in the Certificate or Related Concentration of the Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS).

Students who want to gain first-hand experience by studying in Latin America for a minimum of six weeks in addition to taking courses about the area and in an appropriate language can earn the Undergraduate Certificate in Latin American Studies.

Students may begin their work on Latin America through the Related Concentration in Latin American Studies. This program of study, similar to a minor, is designed for students who want to learn about the cultures and societies of our neighbors to the south, as well as for those who are considering a career with a specialization in the Latin American area.
