Policies and Recommendations:
Majors are required to spend at least one semester in Latin America matriculated in a program that offers university-level courses (not in a language-acquisition program); all course work abroad must be conducted in Spanish or Portuguese. Spanish 135 and 231 must be completed before the semester or year abroad. All study abroad plans must be approved by the director of the Latin American Studies program.
Students may count up to four semester courses of foreign study credit toward the major if they study abroad for an entire year, but only up to two semester courses if they study abroad for just one semester. Students with transfer credits should be advised that four semester courses, combining study abroad and credits from other institutions, is the maximum total permitted to count toward the LAS major .
