Graduate Students

The Latin American Studies program organizes the PhD Seminar, a non-credit, interdisciplinary research group open to PhD students in all UBC faculties. Latin Americanist faculty at UBC work closely together across campus, and both MA and PhD students often include committee members from other departments.

However, LAS does not offer any graduate degrees; prospective MA and PhD students should contact individual departments (Anthropology, Hispanic Studies, History, Political Science, Sociology, etc.). LAS also supports graduate study by sponsoring research events events such as lectures, conferences and workshops, as well as occasional social events open to all.
