BA in Art - Focus in Latin American Art History

Bachelor of Arts in Art Degree with Specialization in Latin American Art and Architectural History is distinguished from all other U.S. universities by its comprehensive focus and training of students in ten detailed upper division courses on the major periods and regions of Pre-Columbian, Mexican, Latin American and U.S. Hispanic art and architecture, including a research capstone course.  This Latin American emphasis allows us to strategically focus our resources on the one area that fulfills UTRGV’s borderlands context and mission.  It can do full justice to the richness and variety of this heritage in a way appropriate to the literally Pan-American cultural and geographic location of UTRGV.  We invite everyone to join us in this zestful quest for the indescribable humanistic riches, fulfillment and self-revelation inherent to Latin American, Latin@, and Pan-Iberian art and architecture.
