Latina/o Studies (minor)
The Latina/o Studies Program at Cornell offers Latina/o Studies as a minor field in graduate studies. The minor invites any Cornell graduate student interested in Latina/o Studies to craft a program of interdisciplinary study. Faculty expertise spans multiple fields, including anthropology, history, literature, law, sociology, government, education, planning, human development, performance studies, language, and more enabling students to develop a graduate minor that meet their specific interests.
Over the course of their study students will be expected to take two Latina/o Studies graduate or advanced undergraduate courses outside of their major field of study. In lieu of available courses, the student and his or her minor field advisor might design a project that culminates in a paper given at a conference or presented for publication. The requirements will vary according to the student’s need and desires in shaping his or her project. It is expected that the student's thesis or dissertation pertain to a topic specific to Latinos in the United States. Upon completion of the minor and graduate degree requirements, the student will be awarded a LSP Graduate Minor Certificate.
This is a minor field. Application for admission is made only to the major fields. After matriculation, a student may select minor subjects from the major or minor fields.
