The College of Liberal Arts administers the interdisciplinary Minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies. The purpose of this minor is to acquaint the student with current and historical knowledge of the region known as Latin America and the Caribbean. The minor signifies that the student has a basic and general understanding of the peoples and cultures of this part of the New World. The requirements of the minor are as follows:

  1. Completion of the requirements of a degree in one of the colleges at UNO.
  2. Completion of 12 semester hours of Spanish language course work.
  3. Credit in courses on Latin America and the Caribbean, to be approved by the Coordinator of Area Studies Minors, for a total of 18 credit hours with a minimum 2.0 grade-point average and at least six credit hours at the 3000 level or above. These 18 credit hours must be chosen from a minimum of three disciplines, with no more than six credit hours from any one discipline. Courses on Latin America and the Caribbean in the major field that are counted as credit hours for that major may not also be counted toward this minor.
