Committed to the importance of international experience and reinforcing Tulane University’s mission to provide opportunities which help students gain understanding, acquire knowledge and develop skills for living in a globally interdependent and culturally diverse world, the Stone Center for Latin American Studies strongly encourages students to avail themselves of a variety of overseas programs, including several which are directly operated by Tulane. These include summer and semester programs in Central America, the Caribbean, and South America. Courses are taught in Spanish, Portuguese, Kaqchikel and K’iche’ Maya, and English, with offerings in Area Studies, History, Diaspora Studies, Business, Linguistics, Public Health, Historic Preservation, Cultural Studies, International Relations, Art, Anthropology, and more. The Stone Center of Latin American Studies and Tulane’s Center for Global Education provide information on these Tulane-affiliated programs as well as others and facilitate students’ access to such programs.

The Stone Center for Latin American Studies offers students the exciting opportunity to spend part of summer break exploring the beauty and richness of Latin America through our own Center-run programs. Currently our 2021 programs invite students to Brazil, Cuba, and Guatemala, and offer 6-7 Tulane credit hours. All of the Stone Center’s summer programs are designed to bring participants closer to the region’s politics, society, history, language, and culture through intensive class work and stimulating explorations outside of the classroom.
Non-Tulane students are welcome to apply to all of our programs. Some programs do not require a language prerequisite. Grades and credits are transferable according to each school’s policies.
