Program Requirements and Opportunities

Published annually, the Course Catalog sets out the requirements of the academic programs--the majors, minors, and concentrations. Each Bryn Mawr student must declare a major before the end of the sophomore year. Students may also declare a minor or a concentration, but neither is required for the A.B. degree. Students must comply with the requirements published in the Course Catalog at the time when they declare the major, minor and/or concentration.

The Course Catalog also sets out the College requirements. Students must comply with the College requirements published at the time they enter Bryn Mawr College.

For more information, visit the Catalog Homepage to view the current content. To view Catalogs from previous academic years, visit the Catalog Archives page.

Students may complete a minor in Latin American, Iberian and Latina/o Studies.

Minor Requirements 

To fulfill the requirements, the student must complete:

  • An introductory course, GNST 245: Introduction to Latin American, Iberian, and Latina/o Studies or its Haverford equivalent: SPAN 240 Latin American and Iberian Culture and Civilization.
  • Five courses that count toward the minor. At least one of them should be at the 300-level.
  • Students Presentations: In the spring of the senior year, minors will present their individual projects in conference-style panels. The project should focus on an issue relevant to LAILS.
  • Language: Although not required, it is strongly recommended that students seek proficiency in one of the languages spoken by peoples of Iberia or Latin America.
