The minor will be extremely valuable for those pursuing careers in business, government, social work, law and justice, and teaching that require engagement with Latino communities in the United States, as well as for those who wish to travel and work in Latin America. Moreover, the Latino and Latin American Studies minor also serves as preparation for graduate study in multiple academic and professional fields.
