Latin American Studies

Advisor — BLASENHEIM

An interdisciplinary approach to the study of Latin American civilization. This minor consists of five units, four in Latin American studies and a language requirement consisting of one unit that can be fulfilled in a number of ways.  

CATEGORY ONE: Latin America in the Social Sciences and Humanities. Students must choose two units which focus on Mexico and Andean South America (Group A) and two units which focus on the Southern Cone (Group B). Courses which appear in both groups deal with aspects of both areas of Latin America.

GROUP “A”: Mexico and Andean South America. AN203, AN207, AN211 (when topic is appropriate), AN236, AN237, AN238; EC337 (when topic is appropriate); HY110 (when topic is appropriate), HY224, HY238, HY335, HY410 (when topic is appropriate); PS336, PS338, PS342; SO116, SO158, SO247, PH283

GROUP “B”: Southern Cone. AN211 (when topic is appropriate), AN236, AN237, AN238; EC337 (when topic is appropriate); HY110 (when topic is appropriate), HY224, HY236, HY238, HY340, HY410 (when topic is appropriate); PS335, PS342; SO116, SO247, PH283

When appropriate, additional summer courses and topics courses will count for the minor.

Category Two: Latin American Language (one unit). This minor requires upper-level Spanish or Portuguese. For Spanish, this would entail one 300-level course offered by the CC Spanish department; for an advanced Spanish or Portuguese course taken elsewhere, this would entail a minimum of one transfer credit, accepted by Colorado College.
