Hispanic Studies for Community Engagement - Minor

The minor in Hispanic Studies for Community Engagement offers students the opportunity to combine advanced Spanish language skills and Hispanic cultural knowledge with an internship or service learning experience. This minor is a perfect complement to degrees in other disciplines, since it allows for courses taught in English that address themes from throughout the Hispanic world. Coursework for this minor consists of 18 hours: 6 hours in 300- to 400-level Spanish courses; 9 hours from relevant courses in Anthropology, English, Hispanic Studies, History, Philosophy, Political Science, or Sociology; and 3 hours in the form of an internship or service learning experience with a Hispanic-serving public or private institution. Of the total required hours, at least 9 must be taken in residence at Texas A&M.
