Latin American Studies Minor

Latin American Studies is a multidisciplinary program that brings together courses focusing on the history, literature, culture, geography, political economy, and social organization of Latin America.

Designed to increase awareness and understanding of Latin American peoples, environments, and cultures, Latin American Studies helps students to enrich their understanding of world cultures and of the complexity of cultural diversity in a changing world.

Students must complete 18 credits to earn a minor in Latin American Studies. In keeping with the multidisciplinary approach of the program, students are encouraged to take courses from departments throughout the university. Students can count no more than nine credits from the same department (or six credits within their major) toward the minor.
