Latin American Studies Minor
Maria L. Amado, Department of Sociology & Anthropology
This minor offers an interdisciplinary approach to cultures, history and current issues of the area. An acquaintance with a diverse cultural tradition will broaden students’ perspectives and help them understand and appreciate the achievement of societies with different cultural values and behavioral patterns. In so doing, the program fosters a critical understanding of global interdependence in the 21st century.
The minor requires a minimum of 16 credit hours (four courses). Spanish language courses are not acceptable; however, content courses taught in Spanish are. To provide depth, at least one of the four courses must be at the 300 level or above.
