The Latino Studies Certificate Program is designed for students who have an interest in Latino studies, regardless of major or college affiliation. It utilizes an interdisciplinary approach to examining the experiences, cultures, and social conditions of Latinos in the United States.

The program is open to any University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee undergraduate who has completed at least 45 credits and to those who previously received a bachelor’s degree from UWM or any other accredited college or university. Students currently involved in baccalaureate studies who successfully complete the requirements of the certificate program are awarded the certificate at the time of graduation. Students who already possess the bachelor’s degree receive the certificate upon completion of the program requirements.

Students who are enrolled in the program must complete 21 credits in approved Latino courses with a minimum grade point of 2.5. Of the 21 credits needed for the certificate, 6 credits must be in the social sciences, 6 credits must be in the humanities, and 3 credits must be taken from the School of Education. At least 12 credits for the certificate must be completed at UWM. For additional program information, contact the coordinator.
