Latin American Studies

The following 2021-2022 courses count for concentration credit in the Latin American Studies field.

In most cases, this means that at least 50% of the material in the course relates directly to the student’s field. If you find a course that you think is well-suited to your own particular course of study, but that does not appear on the list, please petition the Committee on Instruction for credit, keeping in mind the 50% guideline.

Please note that this list will be updated through the start of the semester. Please check back before registering for classes.
