Discover Latina/o studies Fall 2020 course offerings

For the 2020 Fall semester, Latina/o Studies offers a range of 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, and immigration, as well as race, ethnicity, migration, and more.

Students 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 (offered each Spring semester, 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)

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.
