Latin American and Transatlantic Studies Minor


Return to Academic Departments, Programs, and Requirements for Majors and Minors Return to: Academic Departments, Programs, and Requirements for Majors and Minors

Students will explore Latin America and related transatlantic connections through the lens of multiple disciplines. This approach will provide a basis for a more holistic understanding of Latin America and interactions across the Atlantic. Touching on issues such as structures of power, representation, appropriation and adaptation, syncretism, identity, gender, ecology, and religion, students will develop an increased awareness of Latin America and a more global perspective on cultural and biological differences. In this context, Latin America includes the diverse regions of Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean as well as Latinos in the United States. Fluency in French, Portuguese, or Spanish as well as experiential learning (study abroad in Latin America and related transatlantic connections) is encouraged. 

At least 18 hours distributed as follows:


One course in French, Portuguese or Spanish at or beyond the 200-level.
