Latin American Studies Minor

Gabriella Gutierrez y Muhs, PhD, Director


The Latin American Studies minor enables students to acquire an in-depth, interdisciplinary understanding of the culture, economics, history, literature, and politics of the region. It also provides students with the opportunity to study the experiences of Latin American immigrants and their descendants living in the United States. Designed to complement a major field of study, the minor in Latin American Studies helps to prepare students for employment in a variety of professional and non-profit fields and for graduate studies in a number of disciplines.



In order to earn a minor in Latin American Studies, students must complete 30 credits in the approved courses, with a minor/program grade point average of 2.00. No more than 15 credits from any one discipline may be applied to the minor. At least 15 credits must be from upper-division (300- and 400-level) courses (see course descriptions ). At least 15 credits must be taken at Seattle University.

In addition to these 30 credits, the minor in Latin American Studies requires completion of first-year college-level language study or its equivalent in Spanish or Portuguese.

Courses selected for the minor in Latin American Studies may include those which fulfill university core or elective requirements and those taken to fulfill a major.

See policy for minors (84-1 ) for further details.
