An interdisciplinary minor is available to provide educational opportunities not present otherwise and to allow students the flexibility to select courses for the minor from several departments and even from several colleges at the university. The undergraduate minor in Latin American Studies is intended for students who wish to gain a familiarity with Latin American history and culture in order to enrich a major in one of the academic departments of Georgia State University. Students who complete the minor will be well-prepared either to work or study in Latin America or to pursue advanced studies about the region.
