Latin American Studies majors and minors are encouraged to enhance their direct experience of the region and its people by studying in Latin America or in programs focused on Latino populations in the United States for at least a semester of their junior year.

Up to three courses from approved off-campus study programs will count toward the major. Internships associated with participation in an approved program can be credited as long as they are provided in connection with a seminar and a written research project.

Your selection of off-campus courses and credit should be done in consultation with your major advisor.

The current Program Option List for off-campus study in Latin America can be found here
