Ph.D. Minor

Latino Studies Ph.D. minor

The Ph.D. minor in Latino Studies allows graduate students in the social sciences, humanities, sciences, business, law, and education to develop expertise on the historical and contemporary experiences of Latinxs in social, cultural, political, and economic contexts.

Our curriculum emphasizes interdisciplinary, comparative, and applied approaches to knowledge, examining Latinx communities and experiences within local, national, transnational, and diasporic contexts. It also addresses the experiences of Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans, Central Americans, and other Latin Americans who have immigrated to the United States or who have resided in the U.S. for multiple generations.
