Latin America and its Cultures

When Covid hit and the world stood still, this class was a great opportunity to learn about the Latin American Culture. The professor is very knowledgeable about the history and how that has helped shaped the culture into what it is today. As a class, we discussed the history of the culture, food, music, traditions and much more. The professor would have us do research on a topic of interest as well as reading different articles and watching videos. I would highly recommend this class to everyone!

If you did this all over again, what's one thing you would change?
I would have made a reading list of all the authors and books we discussed during class so I could continue reading.
