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 (4xxx) courses outside of their major field of study. Other courses not crosslisted with Latina/o Studies may be eligible upon consultation with the Director of Graduate Studies. 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. As per graduate school regulations the Latina/o Studies graduate minor field must be represented on students special committee by a faculty member in the field. The requirements will vary according to the studentâ€™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.
Students interested in the Graduate Minor should plan to meet with Professor Vilma Santiago-Irizarry, Director of Graduate Studies and register as an LSP graduate minor in the LSP office, 434 Rockefeller Hall.
