About 
 
The A&M Spain History of Latinx Identity program involves two upper-level courses taught by Dr. Carlos Blanton in Sevilla, Spain. These courses focus on history and identity. The ultimate goal of this program is to provide Aggie undergraduates with a rich study abroad learning experience that will positively shape their academic careers and their lives by 1) studying multiple Latina/o identities through time and space, 2) using life experiences in Spain to reflect critically on Latinas/os in the U.S., and 3) critically engaging one’s own identities to navigate cross-cultural learning experiences and develop intercultural competence.
