Latina/o Studies

Latina/o studies minors explore the multiple cultures and traditions of the Latina/o world in the United States, and their significance in American life. You’ll improve how you interact with diverse populations, develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills and become more adaptable for a variety of industries.

You may select from course offerings in the humanities and the social sciences focusing on the cultural, political, historical, religious and social dimensions of U.S. Latina/o communities. Courses include topics such as Mexican-American history, culture and folklore, Hispanic-American literatures, U.S.-Latin American relations and the comparative study of Hispanic-American ethnic groups.

The minor requires 18 hours, including:

  • Three hours in Introduction to Latina/o Studies
  • 15 hours chosen from at least three different departments

Other courses may be applied to the minor, including a substitution for the intro course, with the approval of the minor coordinator or the associate dean of AddRan College of Liberal Arts.
