Latin American Studies Minor


Return to Programs A-Z Return to: Programs A-Z


Minor Requirements (18 Hours)

The interdisciplinary minor in Latin American Studies requires a minimum of 18 credit hours. Because LASP is an interdisciplinary program, we encourage students to take LASP courses offered in the academic disciplines of history, political science, anthropology, geography, literature and languages, and additional areas as they are offered. Coursework in at least two disciplines is required for the minor. Students pursuing the minor in Latin American Studies are required to select Spanish or Portuguese as their language of study, and they must complete at least one 3-hour course at the 200-level in that language. The 200-level course (or equivalent demonstration of language proficiency) is considered a prerequisite for the minor and will not count as part of the 18 hours. Examples of courses offered regularly that could be taken by students minoring in LASP are listed below. In addition to these, there are often Special Topics courses appearing on the course schedule as sections of LASP 398 .
