Courses

There are a number of courses offered throughout Duke University that may help you meet your Certificate requirements. Some departments offer classes that are crosslisted as "LSGS courses," while other departments may have classes with Latino/a-relevant content, but are not crosslisted. We encourage students to explore courses throughout the University and meet with us to discuss if the course(s) you are interested in can help fulfill the certificate requirements.
