The Master of Arts in Latin American Studies at CLAS is designed for students with broad interests who wish to pursue careers in government, business, or the non-profit world in the U.S. or abroad as well as those interested in further post-graduate work in the humanities or social sciences. MALAS students typically focus their studies in one of the following four areas: Political Economy, Government, History, or Literature. However, students may also choose to concentrate in two of these four areas or to pair a concentration from the list with a focus in Anthropology or Sociology. While most students complete the degree in two years on a full-time basis, part-time and accelerated options are available as well.
In addition to the MA in Latin American Studies, CLAS also offers an undergraduate certificate in Latin American Studies, a joint MA/PhD program with the Department of Government, a joint MA/JD program with the Georgetown University Law Center, and a five-year BSFS/MA program. Also, cooperative degree agreements with 15 North American colleges and universities allow undergraduates from these schools to pursue an accelerated masters degree in Latin American Studies at CLAS.
The Center sponsors three summer graduate programs located in Brazil, Chile, and Ecuador. Other summer research opportunities are available in Argentina, Colombia, Mexico, and elsewhere in Latin America.
