This course is an intellectual introduction to regional studies using Latin America as a lens to study the world in which we live and interact. We will take an interdisciplinary approach to the region through geography, history, politics, economics, environmental studies and cultural analysis. Students will also gain an understanding for current socio- political and socio-cultural phenomena that drive international relations within Latin America as well as relations with the United States. We will access information through text, film and online sources. Students will build their skills in critical thinking, as well as thoughtfully articulating their views both verbally and in writing. This course fulfills a global diversity requirement.
