North Central Association of Colleges (NCA) Assessment

To meet NCA assessment standards, all graduating LAAS majors must submit a number of items to the LAAS coordinator prior to graduation. The LAAS major has three basic learning objectives; the materials you submit will demonstrate your progress toward these objectives.

Objective 1
Acquiring a basic introduction to Latin American cultures and societies.
Objective 2
Acquiring the means essential to gain an understanding of Latin America and its diverse peoples.
Objective 3
Placing Latin America in a comparative perspective.

You are strongly advised to develop and save these materials (each is indicated by the objective it serves) as you progress through the program.
