The Master of Arts in Latin American Studies (LAS) prepares students for work in the private sector, government, policy and research think tanks, non-governmental organizations, international institutions, and education. It is a versatile and rigorous one-year program that provides students with an interdisciplinary understanding of the regional context, languages, dynamics, and issues in Latin America today.

The LAS MA program has recently been revised. The curriculum outlined under the Program Description tab represents the new program, which will be current for all students entering BU in fall 2016.  However, please note that the Bulletin and Tracking Sheet buttons on that page still reflect the old curriculum.
