Latin American Studies Collection Policy

Program Description

As an area studies program, Latin American Studies has 69 core faculty in a variety of academic departments across the campus. There is thus no single department or book chair. The Latin American Library has three bibliographers who communicate with the Latin Americanist faculty in the different departments or schools with which they are associated. There are Latin Americanists in the departments of Anthropology; Art History; Biology; City, Culture, Community; Ecology and Evolutionary Biology; Economics; French; Geology/Geography; History; Linguistics; Political Science; Sociology; Spanish and Portuguese; and Tropical Ecology; and in the Schools of Architecture; Business; Law; Public Health; and Tropical Medicine. The Latin American Studies program at Tulane has majors at the B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. levels. There are also students at the undergraduate, master's, and doctoral levels who are pursuing degrees with a Latin American specialization in the individual academic departments and in the professional schools.
