Latino Studies

The Latino Studies minor will provide students from departments across campus the opportunity to expand their understanding of economic, social and cultural relationships in an ever more globalized world.

This cross-disciplinary minor includes courses from the fields of language, history, literature, sociology and political science.

The minor is taught by faculty whose courses touch upon Latino culture, history, politics, language, and society.

Here's what students say about ASU and what they've learned here:

Teresa Spencer:

As a nontraditional student, I am not treated any differently by students or professors.

I am asked by fellow students to join study groups. And when the ASL (American Sign Langage) Club found out I was interested in ASL, they asked me to join them and learn more. When you are trying to find a location on campus, everyone is willing to help, some will even walk you there.

I did an internship with the Rio Grande County Sheriff Office, and it helped me understand the law better. I was offered a job, and became a sergeant.
