The Department of Latin American Studies and Women’s Studies houses the two largest interdisciplinary programs at the University of Scranton. While each program functions autonomously, both share a common administrative structure and a commitment to providing extra- and co-curricular programming to supplement their curricular offerings, and both are organized around the interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary study of social, political, and cultural issues. The governance structure of the department is intended to foster these goals and to insure our commitment to multiple forms of faculty involvement in the teaching, research, and service activities of the department.

The Department currently offers two concentrations, which are the equivalent of multi-disciplinary minors, one in Latin American Studies, and one in Women’s Studies. Most courses for the concentrations are cross-listed with other departments and may be counted towards completion of a concentration as well as other requirements that the course might fulfill (e.g., GE, major, minor, or cognate).
