We strongly encourage students in the major or minor to take advantage of the wide range of experiential learning opportunities offered by MSU in Latin America and the Caribbean.  Education abroad programs, internships, and mentored research provide opportunities to extend language capacity, develop intercultural communication skills and deepen students' knowledge of the region.  

With approval, courses taken during study abroad programs in the region may satisfy requirements of the minor. For more details or for programs offered in other academic years, visit the MSU Office for Education Abroad's program search.
