Students who are accepted are required to:

  • Complete LTAM 497: Independent Studies (3 credit hours)

Students who pursue Honors in Latin American Studies work closely with a faculty advisor to develop and write a Seniors Honors Thesis. Students take LTAM 497 and 499 under the direction of the chosen faculty advisor. LTAM 497 and 499 may count toward the core and elective courses.
