Latin American Studies, Minor

The minor in Latin American Studies (LAS) provides a comprehensive and interdisciplinary understanding of Latin American and Latino culture, history, and language. This is particularly important for preparing UVU students to be fully competitive in the global marketplace since two of the top ten trading partners of the United States, Mexico and Brazil, are located in Latin America. Students learn to comprehend the unique geographical and historical complexities of Latin America and its place in the world, as well as the multifaceted cultural backgrounds of their fellow students whose families are from that vast area. A minor in LAS complements a diverse number of majors giving our students the opportunity to prepare for a future working with either Utah’s growing Latino population or beyond the state pursuing opportunities abroad.
