The goals of the Minor in Latin American and Latino/a Studies are:
This program is flexible. Students are expected to complete course work in a variety of disciplines and departments.
All individual programs of study must be planned in consultation with the Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino/a Studies advisor.
Twenty-four (24) hours of coursework are required. Specific requirements include:
Students must complete six (6) semesters of high school or second semester college (112) coursework in either Spanish or Portuguese. Note: Portuguese is not offered at Illinois State, but transfer credit will be accepted. Also, foreign language credit below the third semester level (115) does not count toward the minor requirement of 24 hours.
Students must have a plan of study approved by the advisor including courses from at least three of the following groups.
Note: Other courses with appropriate content may be approved by the advisor, particularly for SPA 305.15, 360.15; HIS 306; and IDS 203.15, when the topic is Latin America.
Students must be in good academic standing with at least a 2.00 GPA to apply to the major.
Students may apply via My Illinois State, under the "Apply to Your Program" link.
