Discover Latina/o Studies Fall 2019 course offerings

For the 2019 Fall semester, Latina/o Studies offers a choice of fifteen courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. With such a robust curriculum, you have the opportunity to explore and learn about history, performance, art, poetry, music, and education as well as cultural identity, language, communities, migration, and more.

With a recent change to the Latina/o Studies minor, students now have the option of choosing from a selection of four different introductory courses as the required course for the minor. Students are welcome to create a selection of courses that would best suit their interests but must take at least one of these introductory courses:

• LSP 2010 Latinos in the United States (Spring, cross listed with DSOC 2650, SOC 2650, AMST 2655)
• LSP 2100 Introduction to Latina/o/x Studies (crosslisted with AMST 2106)
• LSP 1802 Introduction to Latinos in US History (crosslisted with HIST 1802, AMST 1802)
• LSP 2720 Introduction to Latina/o/x Performance (crosslisted with PMA 2720)

If you have questions about Latina/o Studies courses, or the resources the program provides, we invite you to visit the 4th Floor of Rockefeller Hall.

A path to a Latina/o Studies minor is easy with only five courses required.

One of the focal points of the Latina/o Studies Program is its undergraduate minor, available to all students in any college at Cornell. With a minor, you'll be able to explore the rich histories and contemporary life of Latino communities in the United States. You will learn about Latina/o political and labor participation, creative expression and literature, and issues of immigration, education, language, health, and more.

It's never too late to register for the undergraduate minor. Stop by Latina/o Studies to register and to have your record reviewed for courses you have completed that count toward the minor.
