Declaring the Major and Minor

Students can declare Latin American Studies as a major or minor by downloading and completing the Major/Minor Declaration Form and the Student Data Form. (These forms must be filled out in Acrobat and not in Preview on the Mac or they arrive blank.) E-mail completed forms to LASTadv@tulane.edu and schedule an advising session at http://meetme.so/ediewolfe. All majors/minors must meet briefly with the Stone Center’s Assistant Director of Undergraduate Affairs to review the expectations and requirements of the degree in person, even if the student declared Latin American Studies when they were originally admitted to Tulane.

Those students seeking assistance with the transfer of credit, should speak with either a college division academic advisor or the Undergraduate Advisor in the Center for Latin American Studies.

Every Friday from 10am-12pm CDT, The Latin American Library and Stone Center are co-hosting a virtual work-along for Latin Americanist graduate students to support each other in their research and writing goals. The Zoom meeting has two break-out options: participants may choose to troubleshoot research and methodological questions with an LAL librarian and/or work towards their writing objectives alongside a community of their peers. We hope you will join us when you can!
