Description

Established: 1959

Abolished: 1965

Location: Provo, Utah (1959-1965)

Functions

The Hispanic-American Studies Program was originally designed to meet the professional and cultural goals of individuals especially interested in Latin America whose needs were not served by a major in one department. Individuals interested in the area were to prepare themselves professionally by enrolling in the program to get a greater breadth and comprehensive understanding of the area.

Assets and Administrative Structure

The program was administered by a supervisor under the direction of the dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences from 1959 to 1964. However, there is no supervisor listed for the 1964-1965 school year so it is assumed that the program was directly administered by the dean of the College of Humanities and Social Sciences during that year.

Associated Units
