LAS 3 Latino Studies: Cultures and Histories of Latinos in the United States

*Only one Foundation (FND) course can count toward both a Foundation requirement and a Thematic Sequence. Since this sequence includes multiple FND courses, not all of these FND courses will automatically apply to the sequence. Nevertheless, all courses listed here are available for this Thematic Sequence. You may add any omitted courses to your Thematic Sequence by visiting the Office of Liberal Education for assistance in meeting the allowable requirements.
