Thank you for your interest in the Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Minor in Latin American Studies. I am Dr. Reid-Vazquez, the new coordinator for the program. The undergraduate minor in Latin American Studies is intended for students who wish to gain a familiarity with Latin American history and culture in order to enrich a major in one of the academic departments of Georgia State University.
The specific requirements for an interdisciplinary minor in Latin American Studies are as follows:
- The minor course work must consist of 15 hours of classes with significant Latin American content with a GPA of 3.0.
- These courses must be selected from at least three different departments and may not be from the major department. A general list of courses applicable to the minor are found at the Interdisciplinary Minor in Latin American Studies course link to the right.
- Completion of credit for a Spanish or Portuguese language course sequence of at least four semesters or certification to a similar level by means of an examination administered by the Department of Modern and Classical Languages.
See also the following link for the general requirements of an interdisciplinary minor in the College of Arts and Sciences: www.cas.gsu.edu/2655.html.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
