LACS majors and minors are encouraged to participate in one of the study-abroad programs in Latin America arranged by the Center for Global and Intercultural Study (CGIS). Since 1992, LACS has collaborated directly with CGIS on matters relating to the semester or year long study aboad program in Santiago, Chile, where Michigan students attend classes alongside their Chilean peers at the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, the Universidad de Chile, or the Universidad Diego Portales. LACS has also been active since 1999 in advancing two programs in Bahia and Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
LACS currently holds a reciprocal study-abroad program with Centro Tinku, a major regional studies center in Peru. In addition to benefiting undergraduates, these programs may in the future provide an additional point of organization for links between Michigan faculty and graduate students, and universities and research institutes in Latin America. For more information regarding the program at Centro Tinku, please see our Summer Quechua page.
