Tulane's Latin American Studies program is considered to be among the top programs in the United States. Some 80 faculty members from throughout the university teach and advise students who are pursuing degrees in Latin American Studies. The program houses one of only three separate and distinct Latin American Studies libraries in the United States.
Students pursuing the joint JD/MA in Latin American Studies must complete 24 semester hours of coursework in graduate courses approved by the Stone Center for Latin American Studies. At least one of these courses must be an interdisciplinary, integrating seminar offered by the Stone Center for Latin American Studies. An interdisciplinary thesis option is offered in lieu of one three-credit course. Typically, a staff member of the Center for Latin American Studies serves as program advisor for joint JD/MA candidates.
