This is the first version of the 2023-24 General Catalog. The final edition and the historical PDF will be published during the fall semester.

The undergraduate minor in Latin American studies requires a minimum of 15 s.h. in Latin American Studies Program 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 grade-point average of at least 2.00 in all courses for the minor and in all UI courses for the minor. Coursework in the minor may not be taken pass/nonpass.

Students may count a total of 6 s.h. earned for majors, certificates, and other minors toward the Latin American studies minor. Since the minor is interdisciplinary, it may include a maximum of 6 s.h. of credit from any single department or program. However, a student earning the minor in Latin American studies may not earn the Certificate in Latin American Studies.

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