The Latin American Studies (LAST) Program of California State University at Chico promotes an interdisciplinary approach to understanding Latin American history, society, culture and natural environments, as well as language instruction. This interdisciplinary approach enables students to critically analyze complex issues utilizing diverse sources and perspectives. The Program teaches students to synthesize and appreciate the dynamic interplay of social, economic, political, environmental, and cultural processes. In the framework of Globalization, the LAST Program strives to enhance the recognition of the historic and ongoing relationship of Latin America and the United States.
