Common Core Courses:

All majors are required to take one of the following introductory courses:


All majors are required to take:

Multi-disciplinary Concentrations (18 Credits Total)

Upon declaration of the major students will identify two disciplinary “concentrations” that will guide their course of study. Choices for disciplinary concentrations include: Anthropology,  Art History, Economics, Government, Hispanic Studies, History, and Sociology. To meet this requirement students must take 9 credits (equivalent to 3 courses with a minimum of 3  credits each) from among the courses offered in each of these two disciplines. At least 3 of these courses must be 300-level or above. See below for course listings by discipline. Other courses in topics in Latin American and Latino Studies not listed below may count, but are subject to approval by program director.

Senior seminar:

This requirement is met by taking a 400-level seminar (3 credits) from the courses listed in the Latin American curriculum. Senior seminars will be cross-listed as LAS 450 . It is suggested that the senior seminar be fulfilled with a course from one of the disciplinary concentrations. If this requirement is fulfilled in this way, students must still take a total of 33 credits in the LAS major through an additional course. The senior seminar requirement can also be fulfilled through the pursuit of honors in Latin American Studies.


The elective requirement can be met by taking 2 courses (6 credits) from course offerings in Latin American Studies; these courses need not fall within one of the chosen disciplinary concentrations. Additional elective courses with Latin American Studies designations are listed below.
