Courses and Requirements

The goal of Hamilton’s Latin American Studies Program is to blend economics, government, Hispanic studies, history, Religious studies and sociology to present the Latin American mosaic in all its diverse dimensions.

The interdisciplinary minor in Latin American Studies consists of five courses taken in at least two different departments. At least one of the five classes must be either 300 or 400 level. The list below is representative of courses available to minors.
