Hispanic Cultures and History Minor ~ Overview

This minor is designed for students working toward careers in the social services, criminal justice, education, business, international entrepreneurship, government, community service, advocacy, or similar fields who have an interest in Hispanic cultures but have not yet developed the language skills and abilities necessary for the Spanish Language and Hispanic Cultures Minor.

The general focus is on Hispanic cultures. You will be expected to attain specific course-based outcomes relative to Hispanic culture, history, and literature. You will attain a basic understanding of the philosophical perspectives (ideas, beliefs, attitudes, and values), the behavioral practices (patterns of social interactions), the customs, and creative patterns (literature, art, music, etc.) of the Hispanic cultures addressed by your learning experiences.

Integration with Majors

As career preparation and enhancement, a Hispanic Cultures and History Minor integrates well with all other CSUMB majors, especially Human Communication, Social and Behavioral Sciences, the arts, Liberal Studies, Business, and Health and Human Services.

Since most of the learning experiences offered in this minor are also considered core curriculum for the majors, students participating in this minor will interact with Spanish majors.
