The Center for Latin American Studies at the University of Arizona is dedicated to providing the best education and services to our students. Our academic programs are designed to provide a balanced curriculum in the history, culture, and society of Latin America for students desiring a  broad interdisciplinary education. Faculty members have particular expertise in border issues, Brazil, Mexico, and Central America, and students are able to take a wide range of courses across departments. Fieldwork, study abroad, internships, foreign language acquisition, and community engagement are strongly encouraged. Graduates from the department have gone into a variety of careers, including:

  • Documentary film-making

  • Journalism

  • Teaching (both K-12 and University level)

  • Medical professions

  • Foreign service

  • Humanitarian and nonprofit work

  • Law

  • Consulting work

We offer a Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts in Latin American Studies. The M.A. can be completed as part of a Juris Doctorate, Public Administration, Public Health or Journalism dual degree. The Center also offers a Ph.D. minor in Latin American Studies.
