Latin American Studies (Minor)
Would you like to know more about Latin America—its cultures and history? With a minor in Latin American Studies, you’ll enrich your major and gain an understanding of Latino communities both within and outside the U.S. This six-course program includes multiple approaches: anthropological, cultural, environmental, gendered, historical, political and theological.
After completing six courses that examine Latin America from a minimum of three disciplinary perspectives, you will gain a deeper understanding of American diversity—of Latino communities in and out of the U.S.—and a greater appreciation of marginalized and less privileged peoples across the region.
The Latin American Studies minor requires 18 credits.
