The Latin American and Latino Studies Program encourages and supports student and faculty research on Latin American and Latino politics, history, geography, economics and culture. Faculty members across a variety of departments at Wake Forest are constantly engaged in research on a wide range of Latin American topics and issues including music, human rights, ecology, immigration, music, cinema, development, literature and more. Faculty often opt to enlist the aid of undergraduate students in conducting their research and students are encouraged to seek out the many research opportunities available on campus. Additionally, students who minor in Latin American and Latino Studies are strongly encouraged to write their major thesis, when required, on issues related to Latin American and Latino Studies, when possible.
