Latin American Studies (Minor)


  • Students may be accepted into the Latin American Studies Minor starting in the fall of 2012

The Latin American Studies Minor offers a coherent, comprehensive, and interdisciplinary curriculum examining the historical, political, social, and cultural currents that have shaped the societies and cultures of Latin America.

The Latin American Studies Minor supports student success by preparing them for an increasingly transnational world. Students learn and apply a range of analytical approaches to develop their knowledge and understanding of how those diverse societies have developed through centuries of internal struggle and contested exchange with Europe, Africa, North America, and Asia. The minor also supports students in timely completion of their undergraduate programs by allowing them to fulfill a number of university distribution requirements while pursuing the minor. All courses that fulfill university distribution requirements provide level-appropriate practice in critical and analytical reading, writing, and research.

Courses are taught in English unless otherwise noted.
