Latin American Studies Minor

Program description

The minor in Latin American Studies is a multidisciplinary program that provides students with a chance to explore the people, culture, geography and social history of Latin America as well as the Latino Culture in the United States.

The program combines courses from disciplines, such as art, history, geography, biology, physical sciences, sociology, literature, music, and Spanish in order to provide cross-disciplinary exploration of Latin America.

What can you do with this minor?

The US is the second largest Spanish Speaking country and set to be the largest Spanish speaking country by 2050. As such, this coursework is designed to pair with any other major area of study to better prepare the student for transnational work with Latin American partnerships and/or US Latinos, Spanish and Portuguese speaking consumers and professionals.

A minor in Latin American Studies would be beneficial to students interested in many types of careers, including teaching, public service, health care, law, the sciences, the arts, the media, and other fields.

The minor in Latin American Studies provides a structured complement to a student's participation in the International Student Exchange Program, such that courses taken in the Latin American Studies Program would add to the international experience of the student.
