Latin American & Latino/a Studies
Welcome to the Latin American and Latino Studies Department 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 the Arts and Humanities as well as the 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 Latina/o perspective.
