... of Middle America and South America - from the Rio Grande to Tierra del Fuego.

This course satisfies requirements in the geography major and in the Latin American and Caribbean Studies minor.

Geography asks the questions:

    Where is it?   ~~~~~   Why is it there?   ~~~~~         So what?

    In GS 358, we will explore these questions with respect to Latin America in the context of GLOBALIZATION.

What impact do global political and ecomomic change have on coffee growers in Nicaragua? Factory workers in northern Mexico? Rubber tappers in Brazil? What do the lives of these people have to do with us in North America?

This course meets requirements for the major and minor in geography. It is also an excellent free elective for students in Foreign Languages, Sociology, Anthropology, Political Science, History, Business, or Art. Talk to your advisor about it! Or contact Dr. Hayes-Bohanan for more information. Return to this page for updates and details about the course.
