Latin American Studies Minor
An undergraduate minor in Latin American Studies is offered through the College of Liberal Arts and coordinated by the International Affairs Program.

This program helps students become more effective political communicators and advocates, developing skills and knowledge that can translate into work in campaigning, policy-making and policy-marketing, and lobbying. Beyond required lower and upper-division coursework, students will work with the political science Internship Coordinator to complete three to six units of a relevant internship.
Renewable Energy Minor
The renewable energy minor provides students with the technical skills, economic and political background, and analysis and design skills needed to apply the knowledge gained in their major to the nationally important issues of alternative and renewable energy.
