Latin American and Latinx Studies Minor

This minor explores Latin American and Latinx political and cultural theory and practice in both historical and contemporary contexts throughout the Americas. By way of an interdisciplinary approach to Latin American intellectual and artistic traditions, students will critically engage with the legacies of colonialism, migration, and globalization that continue to pervade ways of being and interacting. By looking at Latin American and Latinx culture on and across borders and in a range of contexts, this minor addresses the intersectionality of identities constructed between Latin America and the United States.

The required core course is PL 230  : The United States and Latin America or IN 229  : Introduction to Latinx Studies. The remaining 12 credits are chosen from the following courses and at least one must be at the 300 or 400 level. Students are encouraged to study abroad and courses will be pre-approved on a case-by-case basis.
