The Latin American studies program welcomes students and faculty with interests in the fascinating and diverse region that stretches from the Mexican border to the tip of Tierra del Fuego. The minor in Latin American studies complements major programs in Spanish language and literature, history, business, economics, sociology, anthropology, political science, art, or other disciplines. A minor in Latin American studies helps prepare students for the teaching profession, whether in Spanish, history, or social studies. It is recommended for students whose plans include travel, work, or study anywhere in the region.
