The minor in Latin American Studies provides students a solid foundation in the histories and cultures of Latin American countries. By combining coursework from a variety of disciplines, students will gain a broad-based understanding of Latin America from the perspective of history, society, politics, language, literature, business, environment, and culture. The minor in Latin American Studies is an excellent complement to traditional majors in both the humanities and business, and provides a substantial foundation for such professional careers as international business, law, teaching, social work, nursing, criminal justice, and government service. It is also excellent preparation for graduate study in such disciplines as business, international management, law, and the humanities.
All students pursuing the minor in Latin American Studies are required to complete 18 semester credit hours. At least nine of the 18 hours must be taken outside the student’s major.
Study abroad in a Latin American country is highly recommended.
