The Master of Arts program in Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS) makes it possible for highly qualified students in the College to combine a B.A. program in an undergraduate major with an interdisciplinary M.A. program in Latin American and Caribbean Studies, which provides students with a thorough knowledge of the cultures, history, politics, and languages of the region. Students with interests across the humanities and social sciences can take advantage of this comprehensive program. B.A./M.A. students participate with M.A. students in all aspects of the LACS program, and pursue a specific course of study depending on their research and professional interests.
