Minor in Basque Studies
An undergraduate minor in Basque cultural studies is offered through the Center for Basque Studies in the College of Liberal Arts. The University of Nevada, Reno houses the only Center for Basque Studies in the United States, and as part of our mission we offer a variety of courses on Basque topics. The present minor provides the student with an introduction and exposure to one of the unique ethnic heritages of the American West.

In addition to the classes offered on the UNR campus, the University Studies Abroad Consortium offers Basque courses in the Basque Country. And now the University of Nevada, Reno's online Independent Learning courses allow students majoring in another field at UNR to complete a minor in Basque Studies entirely online. For information on the online courses, please see the Independent Learning web site.

Requirements for completion of the Basque Studies minor include a two-semester (8 credit) course sequence in elementary Basque, and 15 additional credits selected from the list here.
