Courses Taught Abroad
Courses taken abroad that focus on content related to U.S. Latinos or on Latin Americans awarded credit under Moody College departments, MAS or LAS also may be applicable to the minor. To explore your options, search the "My Credit Abroad Database" which contains information on approved UT course equivalencies from foreign universities and programs. This database represents only courses taken to date – not all possible course options abroad. Students should work with their study abroad program coordinator to determine the full extent of course options abroad. Contact the UT Study Abroad Office for more information.
The following courses offered through UT study abroad, have been pre-approved for the Latino Media Studies minor in the past:
This list represents only previously approved courses – many more are possible, but have not yet been evaluated for credit equivalency for the minor. If you register for a relevant course abroad that you would like to have evaluated for applicability to the Latino & Latin American Media Studies minor, please forward the course syllabus to the academic advisor for review. Note: pre-approval for the LMS minor does not guarantee that these courses will be available during your intended semester of participation abroad.
