Students who minor in Latin American and Iberian studies should refer to the Area Studies Minor Requirements . The minor requires 15 credit hours of coursework. The first six credit hours (two courses) must be chosen from the Core Courses or the Global Perspective. The next nine credit hours (three courses) must be chosen from the Latin American and Iberian studies regional concentration curriculum. At least one course must be selected from the social sciences group and at least one course must be selected from the humanities and arts group. At least nine hours must be at the 3000 level and above.

A cocurricular requirement for the minor in Latin American and Iberian studies is four semesters of college-level study of Spanish or Portuguese. To maximize the educational experience, students are strongly encouraged to spend at least one term or summer studying in Latin America or Iberia.
