Master of Arts - Latin American and Latino Studies at University of Illinois at Chicago: Tuition: $28,006.00 USD/year (Scholarship Available)

The Department of Latin American and Latino Studies offers work leading to the Master of Arts in Latin American and Latino Studies. The mission of the Master of Arts in Latin American and Latino Studies is to offer an interdisciplinary perspective to the study of both contemporary Latin American societies and of historical minorities and immigrants of Latin American descent living in the United States.  It encourages an approach that ranges across the social sciences, humanities, literature and the arts, cultural studies, and history. The M.A. will train students to reflect on and engage with social issues of contemporary importance in the study of Latin American and Latino populations such as globalization, colonialism, postcolonialism, transnationalism, immigration, development, and equality as well as questions related to identity and membership, including race, culture, nationality, and gender.

The program will offer a unique set of research courses to prepare students, including a semester placement with a community based organization in which students will be conducting research. Thus, the main goal of the M.A. is that students learn a series of specialized skills that place them on a solid career path, both in academic and non-academic settings
