PhD Overview

The PhD in Latin American Studies provides an interdisciplinary program for a select number of students whose academic goals may not be sufficiently accommodated by a single academic department. The PhD program is particularly well suited to Latin American students who wish to receive rigorous academic and practical training across disciplines that they may apply to professional contexts in their home countries.


PhD students craft their degree program by focusing on two areas of concentration. Listed below are the concentrations from which students may choose. For more thorough information, see the LAS Student Handbook.
