Program Overview

The Latin American and Latina/Latino Studies minor engages you in interdisciplinary study of Spanish- and Portuguese-speaking nations in the Americas and the Latina/Latino presence in the United States.

The primary objective of the minor is to foster greater understanding of the peoples and societies of the Western Hemisphere. Such understanding is crucial to participation in ongoing intra-hemispheric debates over issues such as immigration from Latin America to the United States, trade policy, and the nature of democracy.

You will develop an individualized minor within the parameters established under the general requirements by drawing from a set of approved courses in literary and cultural studies, history, and languages.
