The Latin American Studies graduate minor is administered by the Latin American Studies committee. The minor offers students the ability to study the region of Latin America from an interdisciplinary perspective and is open to students from across the University. It is housed in three departments: History; Comparative Literature; and Spanish, Italian and Portuguese. Graduate students from across the University are encouraged to participate. Students who are admitted to the minor will develop courses of study suited to their special interests. The minor for each student will be planned jointly by the student, the student's doctoral adviser, and an adviser designated by the Latin American Studies committee. Any change in the plan must be approved by both advisers. A minimum of 15 credits must be completed, with a minimum of 6 credits at the 500-level. Per graduate school regulations for the minor, a representative of the minor will participate on the student's doctoral committee.
