Undergraduate Courses in Latin America and the Caribbean

Last updated in 2016/2017 academic year

Information on the Undergraduate LACS program is available here.

The courses listed below are primarily offered within the Undergraduate LACS program. Course listings do change from year to year, and this list is therefore subject to change depending on faculty availability and interests. Some of the courses listed below are included under more than one subject heading. For updated and detailed description of many of these courses please visit http://www.arts.yorku.ca/sosc/lacs/courses/course_descrip.html.

This list should not be considered exhaustive. In addition to the courses listed here, other courses that are not considered part of the LACS program (Faculty of Arts, Atkinson College, Environmental Studies, Fine Arts, etc.) may have enough Latin American and/or Caribbean content to be counted for credit in the LACS Program. Students should get permission from the LACS Coordinator to count such courses as credit for their LACS degree.

*NOTE: First year courses do not count for credit toward a LACS major or minor but are strongly recommended to students with Latin American or Caribbean interests.  Please consult Divisional First Year Calendars and the Founders College Calendar for further details.
