The minor in Latin American studies requires a minimum of 15 s.h. in Latin American Studies Program (LASP) approved courses (see "Associated Courses" and "Latin American Studies Courses" under Courses in this section of the Catalog), including at least 12 s.h. of credit earned at the University of Iowa. Students must maintain a g.p.a. of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Course work in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.

A student may earn the minor or the certificate in Latin American studies, but not both.

Students may count a total of 6 s.h. earned for majors, certificates, and other minors toward the Latin American studies minor. The minor is interdisciplinary, so it may include a maximum of 6 s.h. of credit from any single department or program.

Students are strongly encouraged to take either or both of these for the minor.
