Additional Courses Requiring Approval

The following electives may be counted toward the minor if final paper or project is geared toward Latin America or U.S. Latinos (paper will become part of portfolio). Latin America is understood historically as those nations/provinces that speak a language which evolved from Latin: Spanish, Portuguese and French. Courses on the Caribbean in comparative context are added to this understanding. The minor advisor or program director must approve these courses and it is the student's responsibility to make sure the final project deals with Latin America.
