Master's in Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies
The School of Interdisciplinary Global Studies funds a limited number of qualified master’s degree students. Funded students will receive a graduate assistantship that includes a stipend for the academic year (9 months), a tuition waiver (not including school fees), and the option of health insurance mostly paid by the department (the student only pays a small amount towards insurance). The graduate assistantship is guaranteed for two years but is based on maintaining satisfactory annual academic progress. The graduate assistantship requires each student to work 20 hours per week, in which case the student would be assisting professors of the department with their teaching and class preparations. The department also provides funding for conference travel or the presentation of research at conferences upon approval. Students interested in an assistantship should complete the Graduate Assistantship Application.
PLEASE NOTE: International students whose native language is not English and who want to be considered
for a graduate assistantship must show proficiency in spoken English even if their
TOEFL has been waived for admission to a graduate program. More information on the
TOEFL requirement can be found under Admission Requirements in the graduate catalog.
