Students who wish to minor in French, German, Italian, Latin, Japanese, or Spanish must take 15-18 hours in courses in the language, including at least 9 semester hours at the 3000 level or above. Students taking more than 15 hours of courses in the language may count the additional hours toward their electives or may consider completing a double major. A minimum grade of C or higher is required in all courses counting toward the minor.
An interdisciplinary minor is available to provide educational opportunities not present otherwise and to allow students the flexibility to select courses for the minor from several departments and even from several colleges at the university. 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. Students who complete the minor will be well-prepared either to work or study in Latin America or to pursue advanced studies about the region.
