Latino studies is an interdisciplinary program designed to acquaint the student with the worldview and experience of Chicanos and Puerto Ricans in the United States. The curriculum emphasizes the history, culture, and socio-economic conditions of Latino people while also examining the nature of minority groups in American society. An Associate of Arts degree (15 credit hours) in Latino studies is available to every student at IU Northwest. The program also offers courses for bilingual education endorsement in the School of Education, the education minor in ethnic and cultural studies, and the education major with bilingual emphasis.
