The U.S. Census Bureau projects that the Hispanic population in the United States will be over 100 million by 2050 – about a quarter of our total population. Well over 60% of this population originates from our closest neighbor, Mexico. Thus, those who have a deep understanding of Mexican culture will be called upon to help shape the political, educational and economic future of our nation, as well as our international policies and relations.
