Advising in Latin American Studies

Exploring a Major or Minor

Declaring a Major or Minor

  • Sophomores must declare a major by December 1 if they plan on studying abroad in their junior years. This usually applies to Latin American Studies majors. Otherwise, sophomores must declare a major by March 1.
  • Students can declare a minor at any time.
  • Students should devise a major or minor plan in consultation with the director of Latin American Studies and a faculty advisor.
  • The Registrar explains the procedure for submitting on-line declarations.

Advising for Current Majors and Minors

  • Before registration weeks in Fall and Spring, students should consult the list of approved courses and schedule an appoinment with their major or minor advisor.
  • In order to obtain major or minor credit for courses taken at another college or university—in the U.S. or abroad—students must obtain the director’s approval, preferably before choosing the course.
