Getting Ready Transfer Guide 2016-2017
The Latin American Studies major is designed to provide students with critical language and cultural skills that serve as the foundation for careers in public service, business, humanitarian work, law, and health care, among others, in Latin America and with Latino populations at home. Students are strongly encouraged to combine the Latin American Studies major with a major (or minor) in another discipline, so that graduates can combine discipline-specific skills with a high degree of language and cultural competency. Review the requirements on the Latin American Studies’ website: http://latin-american-studies.utah.edu/.
Important information: Latin American Studies majors typically combine a Latin American Studies major with a second major in the College of Humanities (e.g. Spanish or History or Communication) or the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (e.g. Sociology or Economics or Geography) or majors from other colleges. Students majoring in Latin American Studies are required to take three years of a Latin American language and should begin their study of a second language prior to transferring.
