INTRODUCTION

If you think life as a training consultant, human resources associate, or field sales representative sounds interesting, then a degree in hispanic american studies may just be for you. You could even become an advocate for the fair treatment of Hispanic-Americans!

POPULARITY

Hispanic-american studies is the 245th most popular degree in America, with 717 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It narrowly lost to #244 Japanese Language and Literature.

The degree is offered at a total of 51 colleges across the nation, and is the 274th most widely offered degree. It is only offered at 19% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America.

It is also worth noting that 77% of colleges offering hispanic american studies are public making it a quite accessible field.

The far west produces the most hispanic american studies graduates, largely led by University of California-Davis, while it’s the Big West Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from University of California-Davis and University of California-Los Angeles.

All that being said, no individual school produces more hispanic american studies graduates than San Jose State University, which graduated 124 students last year alone. Although size is critical, another important factor to consider is the program’s density (the percent of all students that study hispanic american studies). More students studied hispanic american studies as a percentage of total students at Wheaton College than any other college.

Good luck on your college search. We hope you enjoy Authority's 2022 official Best Colleges for Hispanic-American Studies list. Some of our picks may surprise you!
