SPAN211 - Intro to Latin American Identities is taught in English and is aimed at students with little or no knowledge of the region. We begin with the indigenous cultures that existed in Latin America prior to the arrival of the Spaniards. The course continues through the conquest of Latin America and its impact on Latin American society today, specifically in the USA. This course creates culturally literate students who, upon completion of the course, appreciate and differentiate the various Latino cultures in the USA.
SPAN211 is a 3 credit course.
