Program Description

Master of Arts in Latin American and Hemispheric Studies

The George Washington University - Elliott School Of International Affairs

Despite impressive democratization and economic growth within much of Latin America and the Caribbean in recent decades, serious problems such as poverty, inequality, ethnic cleavage, crime, political violence, and illicit drug flows persist; while new issues, including those linked to climate change, resource competition, and natural disasters have emerged. The Elliott School’s Master of Arts in Latin American and Hemispheric Studies (LAHS) is an interdisciplinary program that helps students develop innovative approaches to the enduring problems and emerging challenges of the hemisphere. The program’s design and location facilitate employment at a broad spectrum of organizations based in Washington, DC, as well as elsewhere in the Western Hemisphere.

LAHS is ideal for students seeking a rigorous academic program and an opportunity to develop professional skills for the workplace. The program’s curriculum combines required courses and electives selected to meet a student’s individual professional goals and intellectual interests. Classes meet in the evenings, accommodating the busy schedules of working professionals and allowing students to pursue daytime internships in the Washington, DC, metropolitan area.
