Students who wish to supplement their major with a systematic survey of Latin America may elect the minor in Latin American studies. The minor requires 18 credit hours, with no language competence requirement, distributed in the following manner:

  • Four courses (3 credits each) from the following areas: anthropology, foreign language studies, global studies, history, political science, or sociology, for a total of 12 credits.

  • A senior capstone seminar in Latin American studies, 3 credits.

  • One additional (3 credit) course from anthropology, foreign language studies, history, or political science, with the provision that this course cannot also count toward the student’s major. (Example: A political science major may not take a political science course as the final three credits toward the minor in Latin American studies.)

Required Courses

Requirements for a minor in Latin American studies must be taken from the following list. However, under special circumstances, the advisor of the Latin American Studies Program may authorize an appropriate substitute course, such as a tutorial or a special topics course.
