Latin American and Caribbean Studies Center

Certificate and Minor Programs

The certificate and minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies are a 21-credit and 15-credit program respectively, designed to explore Latin American and Caribbean cultures, democracy, governance, civil society, labor, gender, art, literature, ethnicity, and migration. The certificate is a research-based program, which requires a 3-credit capstone course during your senior year (offered only in the Fall). The minor focuses on a professional path by requiring the completion of a 3-credit internship in a prestigious local and/or international organization (during the Spring or Fall semesters).
