Every semester there are some one hundred courses offered with Latin American content at UNM.
LAS qualifying courses are drawn from more than 20 different departments and schools across campus, and must contain at least 40 percent of content directly related to Latin America. To help students identify appropriate courses, each semester we compile a booklet of courses which students can consult before the registration period commences. Below are the most recent listings.
Students can work with faculty to add more Latin American content to courses that do not meet the 40% threshold with the LAS Course Content Form.
LAS courses are diverse and taught by some of the most dynamic faculty members on campus! Below are two examples of courses being offered in SPRING 2021.
