An Interdisciplinary Program

Our program offers an interdisciplinary  perspective to the study of both Latin American societies and Latinos living in the United  States. The program emphasizes the histories and contemporary social issues of Latin Americans and Latinos as they enter into a transnational dialogue that defines Latin America and the United States in the twenty-first century.

The Master of Arts program in Latin American and Latino Studies (LALS) is a two-year curriculum consisting of five required core courses, a proseminar that focuses on professional development and guiding students toward their career paths,  electives, and a community-based internship. In the fourth semester, students finalize their M.A. paper which they will present at the annual symposium.

Our program stresses mentorship and offers an unparalleled level of guidance and support from a multidisciplinary faculty, many with joint appointments in other departments. Students work with accomplished core faculty members who also serve as their mentors for the duration of the program.
