Caribbean, Latin American & Latino Studies

Masters of Arts in Humanities in Caribbean and Latin/o American Studies (CLAS)
A Multi-Sited Pre-Professional Program in Advanced Studies and Research


This is a unique multi-sited and pre-professional program of advanced studies and research that is unparalleled in US higher education. It combines rigorous classroom study on the history, politics, government, cultures and intellectual traditions of the Greater Caribbean and the Atlantic World, Latin America and the Latino/a peoples in the United States with two consecutive semesters of on-site learning. Our study abroad semester in Merida de Yucatán, Mexico, centers on field work methods. The semester in Madrid and Seville, Spain, is almost entirely devoted to archival research.
