The Latin American and Caribbean Studies program (LACS), celebrating its 60th anniversary during 2021, is committed to a deeper understanding of Latin American and Caribbean societies through teaching and research across humanities, science, and social science disciplines. LACS expands the intellectual presence of Latin America at Cornell by organizing diverse campus activities to bring together faculty, students of all levels, and the Cornell community. LACS sponsors both undergraduate and graduate minors, and we encourage students to gain meaningful international experiences in the region through study abroad programs, short-term course visits, and internship opportunities.
