Latin American Studies

The Graduate Program

The Latin American Studies Program is housed within the Frederick S. Pardee School of Global Studies.

The Latin American Studies Program at Boston University provides students with a versatile vehicle to develop an in-depth and interdisciplinary understanding of the Latin American region. The program offers students a wide variety of regionally focused courses in Latin America, which are taught by a range of academic departments. The interdisciplinary nature of the program provides the necessary breadth and depth for students to understand the complexities and remarkable diversity of Latin America.

Boston University is fortunate to have a first-rate Latin American Studies faculty covering each of the disciplines necessary for a full range of course offerings, including archaeology, literature, art history, economics, ethnomusicology, history, international relations, political science, sociology, and theology. The range and quality of Boston University’s Interdisciplinary Latin American Program is unique in the Boston area and is to be found only in a few other institutions in the United States.
