Latin American & Latino Studies Program

2014 Graduating Seniors

Felicidades to our graduating LASP seniors: Marco Alvarado, Paige Borelli, Kiara Flores, Stephanie Olaya, and Riti Patel!


‌With the Jesuit holistic approach to learning as its foundation, students in Loyola University Chicago's interdisciplinary Latin American Studies Program (LASP) examine Latin American heritage, history, institutions, ideas, languages, literatures and customs through the lens of an intellectual, moral, and ethical framework.

Students gain appreciation for the cultural diversity of Latin America by studying several disciplines such as anthropology, communication, fine arts, history, modern languages and literatures, philosophy, political science, and theology. Students also develop knowledge about key Latin American issues, including social injustice, mestizaje, neocolonialism, political oppression, grassroots movements, popular culture, and resistance.

Latin Americans and Latinos influence culture, education, politics, media, and the work force in the U.S. and around the world. Therefore, an understanding of Latin America is beneficial for professionals in business, communication, education, government service, journalism, law, medicine, pastoral studies, social work, and the arts.
