Latin American and Iberian Studies

What is Latin American & Iberian Studies?

 Latin American and Iberian Studies examines the whole culture or civilization, not only through the humanities and fine arts, but also through the social sciences and history. This allows students to explore a variety of topics—in addition to Spanish and Portuguese language and literature—such as Latin American anthropology, the history of Spain and Portugal, and the political life of Hispanic communities.

At UCSB, the Department of Latin American & Iberian Studies examines the peoples and cultures of Spanish and Portuguese-speaking countries throughout the world. Such study encompasses not only Spain, Portugal, and Latin America, but also Angola, Mozambique, the Philippines, Macao, and the U.S. Chicano and Puerto Rican populations. However, most students center their studies on Latin America.
