Latin American & Latino/a Studies


Welcome to the Latin American and Latino/a Studies Department (LALS) at City College of San Francisco.

The LALS department offers courses in two distinct fields: the study of Latin America and the Latino/a experience in the United States.

The LALS curriculum includes courses in Arts, Humanities, as well as Behavioral and Social Sciences. Since LALS classes are multi-disciplinary, you will find them crosslisted in other departments. The aim of LALS is to help students gain a broad grasp of the culture, history, and current issues that defines the Latino/a perspective.
