IX. Graduate Programs

Latin American and Caribbean Studies

This is the only Latin American and Caribbean Studies Master’s program in Canada to bridge the social sciences and the humanities. The program is particularly innovative with its participation in the collaborative specialization in International Development. In addition to being able to finish the program in three semesters, students also have the benefit of studying in a community with the largest concentration of Latin American scholars internationally renowned for their major collaborative and individual research projects. Study Abroad gives students an opportunity to study and/or participate in projects at partner institutions in Latin America and the Caribbean. LACS program does not train students for specific careers, but prepares them for a variety of jobs that require analytical skills, an international perspective, and the ability to communicate in both English and Spanish. The program prepares students for further study and research at the doctoral level, either in a related core discipline or in an interdisciplinary program.
