Focused and flexible is the best way to describe the Latin American Studies minor. By minoring in Latin American Studies, you can plan and implement a concentration that best serves your post-graduate goals — whether they include a career in business, government, education, or foreign service or post-graduate studies.
The minor requires 18 credit hours — with no language competency requirement — distributed in the following manner:
One course in each of the following areas: anthropology, sociology, foreign language studies, and political science;
A senior capstone seminar in Latin American studies and;
One additional course from anthropology, history, foreign language studies, or political science, with the provision that this course cannot also count toward the student’s major.
