The Minor program in Ibero-American Studies offered on the Madrid Campus provides a richly interdisciplinary approach to the history, politics and culture of Spain, Portugal and Latin America. Courses - drawn from the fields of History, Political Science, Anthropology, Archaeology, Economics, Art History, Philosophy and Theology, as well as Spanish literature and Portuguese - enable students to explore the complex dynamics of Ibero-American societies, from the pre-historic era to the present. Moreover, by living and studying in Madrid and taking part in trips to or experiential opportunities in Latin America and different regions of the Iberian Peninsula, students not only study Ibero-American issues, they experience them.
The IAS Minor requires six courses, and courses of study may be tailored based on a student’s interests and career aspirations. Students at the Madrid Campus can complete the IAS Minor in 2 semesters or in 1 semester and 1-2 summer sessions. Because the minor is multidisciplinary, students may simultaneously pursue it and their major area of study, all while staying on track for an on-time graduation (the IAS Minor also satisfies students’ “remaining hours” requirement of completing a Minor or Major).
