Field of Study: Spanish Language and Literature
Latin American and Caribbean Studies
Description: The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures offers a minor in Spanish and Latin American Studies. You can also consider spending a semester or two in a Spanish speaking country. The Department offers a few scholarships that can support the financial side of your time abroad.

If your focus lies in Latin America, the Spanish and Latin American Studies minor would complement your major plan. The SLAS Minor Plan provides students an interdisciplinary element which is not strictly limited to literature, film and culture. This Plan involves two years of language study in addition to option courses from within the Department and/or other academic units across campus. Option courses include advanced language, literature, culture, art, economics, film, gender, geography, global development, history, political studies and sociology. Students have a variety of ways in which to complete their Plan which could complement their Major and improve future employment opportunities by choosing additional language acquisition courses, literature and culture courses within the language, courses from a particular discipline, or a combination that will give the student a varied perspective on Latin America.
