Latin American Studies Program
Latin American Studies, Minor
What Can I Do with a Minor In Latin American Studies?
You’ll be provided with a broad picture of the Latin American region through course work in anthropology, Chicano/Latino studies, comparative literature, economics, geography, history, humanities, political science, religious studies, Spanish, and women’s studies.
A minor is earned in conjunction with a bachelor's degree.
To receive a minor (18 to 24 units) at Northern Arizona University, you must complete a planned group of courses from one or more subject matter areas with a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0. At least 12 units of the minor must be unique to that minor and not applied to any other minor.
In addition to University Requirements:
- Complete individual plan requirements.
Please note that you may be able to use some courses to meet more than one requirement. Contact your advisor for details.
|Minimum Units for Completion||21|
Take the following 21 units:
Select from the following, in at least three different disciplines (21 units):

If you take this minor, we strongly recommend that you select electives in the Spanish language because linguistic familiarity is essential to a useful appreciation of the Latin American region. If you must meet a language requirement for your bachelor's degree, you must fulfill that requirement in Spanish.
At least 15 units of the minor must be unique in order to differentiate it from other minors. You may use the same course or courses to satisfy requirements in both a major and a minor as long as at least fifty percent of the units in the minor have a different prefix than the major.
Be aware that some courses may have prerequisites that you must also take. For prerequisite information click on the course or see your advisor.
