Georgia Gwinnett College has introduced a certificate in Latin American studies, developed by the Americas Council of the University System of Georgia. 

Offered through the college’s School of Liberal Arts, the certificate is available to students in any bachelor degree program. After completing 18 credit-hours of selected courses, students receive their certificates when they graduate. The certificate will appear on transcripts.

The certificate recognizes a student’s knowledge and understanding of a region of growing importance, both economically and culturally. The course of study is designed to be interdisciplinary and complementary to existing undergraduate programs.

US relations with Latin America have been altered significantly by global and regional economic diversification and growth. The Southeast is one of the US regions most integrally linked to the rapidly evolving Latin American nations. State officials estimate that more than 700,000 Latinos live in Georgia.
