Latin american studies is the 285th most popular degree in America, with 480 students receiving their bachelors degree last year. It just beat out #286 Social Science Teacher Education, and narrowly lost to #284 Slavic, Baltic and Albanian Languages, Literatures, and Linguistics.
The degree is offered at a total of 151 colleges across the nation, and is the 120th most widely offered degree. Given that latin american studies is offered at 45% of the Top 100 Best Colleges in America, you can be sure this is a critical degree and the skillsets acquired are likely to last for a long time.
It is also worth noting that 47% of colleges offering latin american studies are public making it a pretty accessible field.
The far west produces the most latin american studies graduates, largely led by California State University-Chico, while it’s the Pacific-12 Conference that leads conference totals. As far as states, California ranks highest, with particular help from California State University-Chico and California State University-Northridge.
All that being said, no individual school produces more latin american studies graduates than Georgetown University, which graduated 36 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 latin american studies). More students studied latin american studies as a percentage of total students at Southwestern University than any other college.
