Latin American Studies
The interdisciplinary minor in Latin American Studies includes
the following requirements:
- Eighteen credits in 300-400-level courses focusing on Latin America
and selected by advisement from at least three of the following disciplines:
anthropology, art, economics, history, political science, sociology,
- Proficiency in Spanish, demonstrated by successfully completing a
Spanish course at the 300/400 levels or by obtaining a passing score
in a proficiency exam. SPN 354 Culture and Literature of Spanish America
is highly recommended to help students familiarize themselves with the
cultural history and the literature of Spanish America.

of study through the SUNY Brockport program in Costa Rica or Cuernavaca,
Mexico, may receive 12 credits toward the minor. To complete the minor,
they need only one additional course in each of two disciplines.
