University of Massachusetts Boston Latino Studies Program

Latino Studies Program

The Latino Studies Program is home to a vibrant community of students, faculty, and staff committed to sustaining the relationship between Latino Studies and the lived realities of Latino communities in greater Boston, New England, and across the United States. Students in the program develop an understanding of the processes underlying the formation of Latino communities, the everyday lives of Latinos, and the role of social and cultural practices in  constituting  Latino identities. One of the goals of the Latino Studies Program is connecting to and supporting the University of Massachusetts Boston Urban Mission by attracting, supporting and retaining Latino students, working with others to establish a strong presence and support for Latino students and Latino academic studies.
