The minor in Mesoamerican Studies offers students a crossand interdisciplinary curriculum on the cultures frequently associated with the Aztecs and Mayas, but inclusive of other ancient peoples who populated metropolitan and ceremonial centers such as Teotihuacan and Tula. The fields of study include art history, cave archaeology, colonial ethnography, and myth narratives read as examples of Mesoamerican “literature,” such as the poetry of Ancient Mexico (e.g., Texcoco), and Maya texts, such as the Popol Vuh and the Rabinal Achi, among others.

A total of 24 units in required and elective courses comprise the minor in Mesoamerican Studies.
