Advising

Prospective majors should consult the  department advisor for guidance on courses. Appointments are scheduled in the LACS office, 734.763.0553 or lacs.office@umich.edu. Normally, a plan for the major should reflect the multidisciplinary nature of the program and the themes that a student wishes to develop. Students should file a tentative plan for the major with the Program in their junior year, and update it prior to graduation.

It aims to enhance the student's disciplinary training, received through major in a traditional discipline, by exposing the student to the topics and issues that are raised in the multidisciplinary area studies approach to countries of the Americas. Students wishing to pursue a minor in Latin American and Caribbean Studies must develop a specific plan for its completion in consultation with the LACS Student Advisor.
