Latin American Studies (Minor)

Program Availability

Enrich your major and your perspective with the Latin American Studies minor. This interdisciplinary program provides a broad understanding of Latin American cultures and history. You’ll learn through a range of approaches: anthropological, cultural, environmental, gendered, historical, political and theological.

After completing six courses that examine Latin America from a minimum of three disciplinary perspectives, you will gain a deeper understanding of American diversity — of Latino communities in and out of the U.S. — and a greater appreciation of marginalized and less privileged peoples across the region.
