Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs by Department

The minor in Latin American Studies offers a cross-disciplinary concentration on an important region of the world for students preparing for careers and/or graduate school located in, or focusing on Latin America. Through a combination of courses in different disciplines, it provides a general background in Latin American culture, history, politics, economics, literature, social structures, and foreign relations. Although study of a language (other than English) is not required, it is highly recommended.

The minor consists of 20 semester units, which include courses:

  • In at least two different disciplines;
  • At least one from the Regional courses; and
  • No more than 12 units from any one discipline.

Students interested in the minor can contact: James Mestaz, Department of History at mestazj@sonoma.edu
