Participants in the minor are encouraged to explore the possibility of studying in a Latin American country for a semester or summer session. In the past, students have participated in programs in Mexico, Central America, South America, and the Caribbean.
These JMU study abroad opportunities either take place in Latin America and the Caribbean or carry some LACS minor curriculum content. Visit the Office of International Programs for additional study abroad opportunities.
These study abroad programs are not pre-approved by JMU for academic credit. It is the student’s responsibility to clear the program and its coursework with the Registrar’s office prior to attending any outside program to ensure that academic credit will be applied to the student’s degree program.
