Built on a foundation developed in Race, Ethnic, and Indigenous Studies, Latinx Studies engages the rich and varied histories, politics, social movements, and arts of populations of Latin American descent in the United States, including but not limited to those of Mexican/Chicanx, Caribbean, Brazilian, and Filipinx backgrounds in relation to other racialized groups. Latinx Studies spotlights the contributions Latinx people have made to the United States while also paying attention to their roots in other places.

Students who minor in Latinx Studies consider their identities in relation to contemporary issues involving immigration and citizenship, law and justice, health care and education, policing, and gender. They celebrate the richness of Latinx culture in its full range of expression and act with intention in their communities.

Knowledge of Spanish is not required for the minor; however, interested students may choose to take courses in Spanish to fulfill program requirements. Latinx Studies pairs well with almost any major, including Health Sciences, History, Peace Studies, Criminology and Law Studies, English, Philosophy, and Spanish for the Professions.
