Latin American and Iberian Studies Graduate Degree Program

Description

The Program in Latin American and Iberian Studies (LAIS) offers interdisciplinary training leading to the M.A. degree. The broad, interdisciplinary nature of the program allows students a great deal of scope to define and develop their scholarly interests. Students may study abroad for one or more quarters in Spain, Portugal, Latin American, and the Caribbean. Although there is no doctoral program in LAIS, many successful graduates of the M.A. program pursue doctoral study in traditional academic departments such as anthropology, communication, economics, history, literature, or political science, or enter professional schools to study business administration, education, law, public health, or sociology.
