The Latin American Studies Minor provides students with an inter-disciplinary perspective on a diverse and vast region vital to the Central Valley, California, and the U.S. The program is designed to foster an understanding and appreciation of Latin America today through a wide range of disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Faculty advisers encourage students to be creative and design a specialization that complements a number of competitive majors including Anthropology, Business, History, Political Science, and Journalism. The minor encourages students in the classroom, study abroad experience, and extracurricular activity such as the annual colloquium series.
