An elective with content in Latin American and the Caribbean may be taken in any UMD department. Consult the program for a list of pre-approved courses. Courses not on the pre-approved list may be used with approval of the director. 400-level courses may be taken with additional assignments.
In addition to English, students must demonstrate advanced proficiency in one of the other languages of the Americas: indigenous languages, a creolized language such as Haitian Creole, colonial languages -Spanish, Portuguese, French - or other language considered by the program administration to be relevant to study of Latin America and the Caribbean. Proficiency may be certified through a language translation exam administered by an affiliate faculty member or through advanced-level coursework in the student’s indicated language. If done through coursework, students must have a grade of “B-” or better in an advanced-level course. (Students who receive a grade lower than a “B-” may repeat the course).
