The minor in Latin American and Hemispheric Studies offers students the opportunity to explore connections throughout the Western Hemisphere from an array of perspectives across multiple academic fields.

The minor is made up of six courses, arranged in three tiers: Basic (one lower division course on the history of Latin America); Core (two introductory upper division courses chosen from a designated list of fields other than History); and Elective (three additional upper division courses from a designated list of courses that focus primarily on Latin American and/or Hemispheric issues). Students are strongly encouraged to develop proficiency in Spanish or Portuguese, either through course work (such as completion of SPA 024 or 033), or through life experience such as study abroad.
