Minor: Latin American Studies


The Latin American Studies Minor is an interdisciplinary program offered through a number of cooperating departments including Foreign Languages, History, Geography, Political Science, Philosophy, Psychology, Sociology and Anthropology.  Students wishing to minor in Latin American Studies must have their course selection approved by the program coordinator.

Prerequisite:  Students must complete two years of college study of Spanish or Portuguese, or demonstrate equivalent proficiency before they may begin the minor.

Complete these courses in Spanish or Portuguese: 1010 (3), 1020 (3), 2010 (3), HU2020 (3), or demonstrate proficiency through an interview with a faculty advisor or successfully complete an upper division course with a "C" or better.

Minimum Grade Requirement:  You must earn a "C" or better in all courses required for the minor (a "C-" is not acceptable).

Credit Hour Requirement:  For the minor, a minimum of 15 credit hours is required in addition to two years of college study of Spanish or Portuguese (or the equivalent).  Courses taken as part of the student's major will not count for fulfillment of the minor requirement.

Requirements (15 credit hours)

Select 15 credit hours from at least three of the following departments:  Foreign Languages, History, Geography, Political Science, Anthropology

Should other courses, experimental or permanent, relating specifically to Latin America be added to the curriculum, these courses may be accepted as part of the Latin American Studies Minor Program.  All such courses must be approved individually by the Latin American Studies coordinator.
