Undergraduate Programs in Latin American Studies

Although the center does not offer a B.A. in Latin American Studies, it does offer a minor and an honors program. Stanford also has departmental and interdisciplinary degree programs in which a student may concentrate on Latin America. These include Anthropology, History, Political Science, Spanish and Portuguese, and International Relations. Contact the respective departments for further information.


Each summer, the center awards grants to a small number of undergraduates to undertake internships in Latin America. Applications include a proposal, academic transcript, and recommendations from a faculty member and one other person knowledgeable about the applicant's abilities. Students from any department are eligible to apply. See


The LAS honors college, sponsored with many other departmental and interdisciplinary honors colleges by the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education, is an intensive three-week residential program offered directly preceding Autumn Quarter. It affords returning LAS honors students who have completed field work a debriefing and a focused series of presentations by a member of the CLAS-affiliated faculty and other Stanford instructors on adviser interaction, bibliographic resources, writing strategies, statistical analysis, organizational techniques for completing the thesis process, and opportunities to socialize with other honors students in the college, all without cost to the students. Ample time is provided for library research, individual faculty consultations, and data analysis. Applications for honors colleges are available in Spring Quarter prior to the senior year.
