The Stone Center for Latin American Studies offers Tulane undergraduate and graduate students, and their colleagues from other universities, the exciting opportunity to spend part of summer vacation exploring the beauty and richness of Latin America. Currently our programs invite students to Brazil, Argentina, Costa Rica, Cuba, and Guatemala, and offer 6-10 Tulane credit hours. All of the Stone Center’s summer programs are designed to bring the participants closer to the region’s politics, society, history, and culture through intensive class work and stimulating explorations outside of the classroom.
Non-Tulane students are welcome to apply to our programs. Some programs do not require a language prerequisite. Grades and credits are transferable according to each school’s policies. See our scholarship resources below.
