Latin American, Caribbean and Iberian Studies Program

Master of Arts

The Master of Arts degree in the Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies Program (LACIS) is designed to provide an interdisciplinary study of Latin America, Spain and Portugal.


The Program has few courses of its own (aside from a "core seminar" on "Trends in Latin American Studies"), and a small course listing in the Timetable. Students take courses from a wide array of departments that have offerings relevant to Latin American, Caribbean, and Iberian Studies.


These include, among others, Agriculture, Anthropology, Business, Economics, Geography, History, Journalism, Law, Political Science, Sociology, Spanish, Portuguese and Quechua. A list of LACIS courses is prepared each semester by the Program staff.
