College - Portuguese Program



The Department of Iberian and Latin American Cultures (ILAC) offers undergraduate degrees in Spanish and Iberian and Latin American Cultures. In addition, many students earn minors in Spanish or Portuguese. Majors in Iberian and Latin American Cultures as well as minors in Spanish and Portuguese exposes students to a variety of perspectives in languages, literatures, and cultures of the Iberian Peninsula, Latin America, and Latina/o populations in the United States. The program balances an emphasis on literary studies with a diverse set of approaches to cultural and social issues. Courses in the program provide students with a contextualized knowledge of the literatures and cultures of the Iberian Peninsula from the medieval period to the present; the Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries of Latin America; and the Spanish-speaking communities of the United States.
