Prospective students to the Master of Arts Program in Latin American Studies will apply to the program through either the Division of the Social Sciences or the Division of the Humanities, depending on their primary disciplinary orientation (once admitted, the Division through which a student is admitted has no impact on curriculum, course registration, or faculty advising).
