Minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies

Program requirements:
Minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies

The minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS) provides students with opportunities to learn more about this complex, diverse and vibrant region with important social, cultural, and economic ties with Canada through a wide range of courses and perspectives. Enrolment in the minor will help to foster a sense of community among Carleton students interested in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and present graduating students with better opportunities to participate in research, community, and volunteer and work-related activities related to Latin America, both in Canada and in Latin America.

The LACS minor brings together perspectives and approaches from Political Science, Sociology and Anthropology, Economics,  History, Geography, Social Work, Law, English, the School of Language Arts and Linguistics, as well as International Affairs and Business.

Currently, around 25 professors teach or do research on Latin America and the Caribbean across three faculties at Carleton University: Arts and Social Sciences, Public Affairs and the Sprott School of Business.
