The minor in Latin American Studies requires six courses (18 credit hours), including LASP 101 and 395, four LASP electives and the fulfillment of a language requirement. For more information about Latin American Studies courses, see our course offerings.
The work done to satisfy the language requirement does not count toward the 18 credit hours. Students can elect a specialization in the humanities or social sciences. No more than two electives may be chosen from the same department.
The language requirement can be satisfied in one of three ways:
- Successful completion of the Spanish (SPAN) 101–102 sequence in the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures
- Successful completion of at least two years of high school instruction in Spanish, whether in the United States or abroad
- Successful completion of a Spanish language examination or the equivalent administered by the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, demonstrating eligibility for coursework at the 103 (intermediate) level
