Latin American Studies Interdisciplinary Minor

B.A., B.S. degrees

     This minor is designed for students with a strong interest in Latin America. Cultural, political and economic ties between this region and the United States have always been strong, and are becoming ever more important in the world arena. A student with a minor in this area will be able to become involved more easily in different political and industrial areas of the U.S., both nationally and internationally, in private and governmental sectors. The minor can also constitute a preparation for more specialized studies in graduate school.

     Students are encouraged to include study abroad as a part of their fulfillment of requirements for the minor. Advisers and the Office of International Programs will assist the student in selecting from a number of recommended sites and universities throughout Latin America, including the Universidad Austral de Chile located in Valdivia, Chile.
