Latin American and Latino Studies

The Latin American and Latino Studies Program (LALS) is an interdisciplinary program. Currently, nine departments contribute courses to the program. The minor consist of 18 credits: two required courses (LALS 201 and 205), which meet the Non-Western requirement; a capstone course (LALS 401); and three courses across disciplines. Students may major in the academic department of their choice. The LALS minor combines well with careers in business, economics, education, law, medicine, social sciences, literature and the arts. A series of cultural programs, films, forums and lectures provides insight on current issues and exposes students to a wide range of views on LALS topics. Study abroad is strongly recommended, although it is not a requirement. Students interested in this option will make arrangements through Montclair State University’s Global Education Center. As many as four courses may be used from the study abroad experience to complete the LALS minor.
