Latin Studies

A minor in Latin American Studies requires 20 semester hours selected from the following list of courses and others approved by the program coordinator.

No more than 12 hours may be chosen from any one discipline. Up to 12 hours of study abroad courses that emphasize Latin American subject matter may count for the minor as approved by the program coordinator.

Language Proficiency

Intermediate proficiency in the Spanish language is a concurrent requirement for the minor. This requires students to either pass the Spanish placement exam at the SPN 122 level, pass SPN 122 for an additional four hours, or pass SPN 121 and SPN 122 for an additional eight hours beyond the 20 hours required for the minor. In other words, students must complete the Elon language proficiency requirement in Spanish. Students using these courses to meet the concurrent requirement are advised to take them as early as possible.
