We require that a minimum of 1/3 of the material covered in the course directly represent the Latina/o and/or Caribbean people. The program is 18 credits, 6 of which must be in Spanish, French, or a combination of Spanish and French. The other 12 credits must be selected from the list of courses below. No more than 6 of the 18 credits may count simultaneously towards the LCS minor and another program or GCU requirement. Courses should be chosen in consultation with the student’s advisor.
