The information listed below is a direct excerpt from the 2017-18 Course Catalog.
Published annually, the Course Catalog sets out the requirements of the academic programs--the majors, minors, and concentrations. Each Bryn Mawr student must declare her major before the end of her 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, Latina/o and Iberian 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.
- In the spring of the senior year, an individual presentation on an issue relevant to LAILS. Minors will present their individual projects in a conference-style panel.
- It is strongly recommended that students seek proficiency in one of the languages spoken by peoples of Iberia or Latin America.
