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.
Students may complete a minor in Latin American, Iberian and Latina/o Studies.
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 a conference-style panel. 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 or Iberia.
