The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies at NYU offers an M.A. program in Latin American and Caribbean Studies. Our MA program offers a unique and exciting academic experience: students thrive from access to world-renowned scholars and wealth of research resources while pursuing a flexible interdisciplinary program. The MA program in Latin American and Caribbean Studies also offers a concentration or Advanced Certificate in Museum Studies; a joint program in Global Journalism; and a dual program in Library Studies (with LIU Palmer School of Library & Information Science). The degree is a rigorous three-semester or four-semester academic program designed for those interested in pursuing careers in the academy, media and journalism, human rights, non-governmental work, public policy, and arts and cultures.
