Academics: Current: Graduate Study Abroad

Graduate students in the LAS program are encouraged to avail themselves of UNM's summer study abroad programs in Latin America and Spain. In the past, students have identified internships, intensive language programs, or field research experiences as the basis of their study abroad. Students may participate in UNM's semester exchange program with the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM); financial support from the LAII will be available on a competitive basis.

Students who intend to pursue summer language programs may want to consider the LAII's Foreign Language and Area Studies (FLAS) Fellowships given that FLAS Fellowships provide the recipient with the opportunity to study a less commonly taught language, including Portuguese, K'iche' Maya, and Quechua.

Students who intend to conduct field research in Latin America should consider applying for an LAII Field Research Grant (FRG), which offers financial support to conduct individual graduate field research in Latin America.

For more information about general study abroad programs, visit the website for the UNM Global Education Office (GEO). Of particular usefulness is the GEO's Program Search feature, which allows users to browse programs by region and country.

Students who wish to transfer credits from a study abroad experience towards their LAS degree must work closely with the Associate Director for Academic Programs to identify the best institution and appropriate courses.
