Open to all students, the Latin American, Latino/a, and Caribbean Studies (LAS) minor is a valuable complement to a wide range of majors. Students must complete at least 6 of the 18 credit hours required for the minor by way of LAS or LAS cross-listed courses. The remaining credit hours may come from additional LAS courses or courses on Latin America and Latinos offered in a number of different departments across campus. (18 semester hours)
