The Chicanx and Latinx studies minor is an interdisciplinary minor that provides a broad introduction to the histories and cultural artifacts produced by Spanish-speaking communities in the United States. Through a coordinated course of study drawing upon course offerings in the Departments of Communication, Ethnic Studies, History, Literature, Music, Philosophy, Political Science, Theatre and Dance, and Visual Arts, students will gain an understanding of this important segment of the US population.
Language Requirements: students will have the equivalent of two years of Spanish language instruction at UC San Diego. Satisfactory completion of LTSP 2A, B, C or LTSP 2D or LTSP 2E will satisfy this requirement. Students may count two lower-division language courses (eight units) toward the total unit requirement. Students have the option of petitioning another language sequence to count toward this requirement.
Students will complete seven courses, five of which must be upper division. Students may take a maximum of three upper-division courses in any one department. The required distribution of the five upper-division courses may be selected from among the following courses. Students may petition to receive credit for courses not listed below.
