Latina and Latino Studies

The Latina and Latino Studies graduate minor is an interdisciplinary minor that will be administered by a faculty committee appointed by the dean of Liberal Arts and made up of faculty in English, Comparative Literature, Spanish, and other appropriate disciplines. 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 Latina and Latino Studies committee. Any change in the plan must be approved by both advisers.

A minimum of 15 credits must be completed. Per graduate school regulations for the minor, a representative of the minor will participate on the student's doctoral committee. This representative may be a member of the Latina and Latino Studies committee or any other faculty member approved by that committee.
