Latin American and U.S. Latino Studies Minor

The interdisciplinary minor in Latin American & U.S. Latino Studies (LALS) is designed to introduce undergraduates at A&M-Commerce to the histories, cultures, politics, and societies in Latin America, as well as the descendants of Latin Americans who reside in the United States (U.S. Latinos).
