Latina and Latino Studies Graduate Minor

Minor Requirements

Requirements listed here are in addition to requirements for minors in Graduate Council policies listed under GCAC-600 Research Degree Policies and GCAC-700 Professional Degree Policies.

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 Council regulations for the minor, a representative of the minor will participate on the student's dissertation committee. This representative may be a member of the Latina and Latino Studies committee or any other faculty member approved by that committee.

Courses

Graduate courses carry numbers from 500 to 699 and 800 to 899. Advanced undergraduate courses numbered between 400 and 499 may be used to meet some graduate degree requirements when taken by graduate students. Courses below the 400 level may not. A graduate student may register for or audit these courses in order to make up deficiencies or to fill in gaps in previous education but not to meet requirements for an advanced degree.
