Minor in Latin American and LatinX Studies (LAT)

The School of Modern Languages; School of History and Sociology; Sam Nunn School of International Affairs; and School of Literature, Media and Communication, offer a minor in Latin American and LatinX Studies (LAT). This interdisciplinary minor connects studies of the regions and peoples in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as Latino/LatinX populations in the United States, both concurrently in their local and global relationships as well as longitudinally over the course of history. Through the interdisciplinary study of history, politics, economics, literature, media, and languages of these regions and populations, students engage in the comparative study of societies, values, and local/global issues. This minor is designed for undergraduates who will enter a wide range of careers that can lead directly or indirectly to interactions with the people, social organizations, businesses, and governments of Latin America and the Caribbean or with Latino/LatinX communities and related institutions here in the U.S., especially in terms of the critical technological, social, and policy decisions that all those communities face today in a global perspective.

For further information please email the minor’s advisor, Miguel Rosas Buendia (mbuendia3@gatech.edu).
