LATIN AMERICAN AND IBERIAN STUDIES CERTIFICATE (35 CREDITS)
Stretching over thirty countries, from Mexico to Central America and the Caribbean to South America, Latin America is a major world region, neighbor to the United States and increasingly the point of origin for a significant number of Americans. Through growing hemispheric links such as NAFTA, CAFTA and the OAS, Latin America has been and will continue to be a major area of U.S. business, economic and political relations. The Latin American and Iberian Studies Certificate will provide the EWU student, and the Spokane metropolitan area, with the opportunity to gain a highly specialized and integrative knowledge of the internal and international issues related to Latin America and Iberia (Spain and Portugal), by focusing on culture, history, politics and language in a premier public university setting.
