Minor in Latino/Latin American Studies

A minor in Chicano/Latino Studies (CLS) requires 18 hours. The minor may be secured by completing one of the CLS introductory courses LLS 1010 or 1020. Twelve of the 18 hours must also be taken at the 3000-4000 level among the approved courses. A maximum of nine hours taken within a single department may be counted toward the minor. Successful completion of at least the first-year introductory Spanish courses is strongly recommended. A minimum grade of “C” is required in each course counted by the student toward this minor.
