The Latino Studies Program at Cornell offers Latino Studies as a minor field in graduate studies. The minor invites any Cornell graduate student interested in Latino Studies to craft a program of interdisciplinary study. Faculty expertise spans multiple fields, including anthropology, history, literature, law, sociology, government, education, planning, human development, and language, enabling students to develop a graduate minor that meet their specific interests.

Applying
Students interested in the Graduate Minor must meet with the Director of Latino Studies and formally register as an LSP graduate minor in the LSP office, 434 Rockefeller Hall.
