Why Latino Studies?

Your reasons may be entirely personal. But the academic and professional advantages are clear. Currently, Latinos comprise more than 15% of the U.S. population. That percentage is projected to exceed 25% in the coming years. Consequently, forward-looking corporations, educational institutions, government agencies, and professionals value individuals who possess a knowledge about Latino communities, their cultures, and their histories.

Is there a language requirement to take a Latino Studies minor?
No. In general, Latino Studies courses do not require a knowledge of Spanish. However, a familiarity with Spanish (or any second language) is always an asset.
