The Latino and Latin American Media Studies minor in the Moody College of Communication allows you to take courses and specialize in learning about Latina/os and film, television, new media, journalism, advertising, and other media forms. As Latinas and Latinos are growing as a national population and force, this is an increasingly useful and important area of professional knowledge. The goal of the minor and the linked Latino Media Arts & Studies Program is to support students interested in U.S. Latino and Latin American film and media, journalism, advertising, and oral history production, and in serving Latino and Latino American audiences and consumer markets.
You may already be taking courses that are required for the program, as many of these courses also meet your Cultural Diversity flag and other degree requirements. You can take the courses in any order, enroll at any point during your studies, and enhance your overall education by gaining access to related courses outside of your major. The minor is open to all undergraduate students at UT-Austin. Students from outside the Moody College of Communication may have differing prerequisites after they are admitted to the minor.
