Latin American Studies Minor

Latin American studies is an interdisciplinary minor encompassing anthropology, communications, economics, geography, history, linguistics, political science, Spanish, and Portuguese. Knowledge of Latin America is especially valuable for students who plan to work in education, international organizations, government, social services, and business, or for graduate studies related to Latin America.

Students can complete the minor by selecting any five courses representing at least three disciplines. Latin American history (HIST 531 or 532) is required. A minimum of high-intermediate level proficiency in Spanish or Portuguese must be reached through coursework or other means (completion of Spanish 504 or Portuguese 504 at UNH, or equivalent courses or equivalency testing).

Enrollment in these five courses must follow the guidelines below to count for the minor:

Academic study in Latin America is strongly recommended: Speak with faculty to help you find the study abroad program that best fits your interests. UNH and its affiliates offer several short- and long-term programs throughout Latin America.
