Faculty      Degree Requirements    Links

The Minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies and the accompanying Certificate are designed to introduce students to the study of Latin American culture, history, geography, language, politics, and society.

This program offers an opportunity for students to pursue an interdisciplinary unit of study that enhances their major area by providing students the chance to explore the rich cultures and societies of the region in a global context. 

Minor/Certificate Requirements

Students pursuing the joint minor/certificate in Latin American and Caribbean Studies take eighteen semester hours from an approved list of courses.  In order to receive credit students must achieve a grade of C or better in each class.

To see a list of approved courses visit the Degree Requirements page. 

A student may petition the Latin American and Caribbean Studies coordinator(s) to receive credit for a course that is not included on the list of approved courses, if at least 25% of its content examines Latin America and/or the Caribbean.

Students are highly encouraged to pursue Study Abroad options in order to receive credit towards the minor/certificate.  However, coursework must have coordinator(s) approval before students depart on their Study Abroad experience.
