The Latin American and Caribbean Studies program offers Berry students the opportunity to explore one of the world’s most diverse and fascinating regions. Latino immigration to the United States and the increasing importance of Latin America in the global economy mean that there is a growing need for persons with the skills necessary for communicating effectively with people from this region. Students completing a minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, therefore, are at an advantage in nearly any job pool. They are at a special advantage when competing for positions in companies with business interests in Latin America; health care and social work professionals; journalism; federal and state government careers; graduate programs in the social sciences; professional degree programs in fields such as public policy, public health, social work and business; and education, from elementary grades through higher education.

Students earning the minor in Latin and Caribbean Studies are strongly encouraged to study abroad in a Latin American or Caribbean country and/or carry out a LCS-related internship, either locally or abroad.

Minor Requirements: 18 hours


With permission of the director, students may also choose from the following courses:
