The Master of Arts in Latin American Literatures and Cultures at NEIU offers students the opportunity to engage in a theoretically informed exploration of a wide range of Latin American cultural forms of expression, including literature, film, music, and art.  The program emphasizes the development of critical thinking and research skills in the Humanities, as well as written and oral proficiency in Spanish at the advanced level.  These skills, in turn, enhance students' ability to work with Latin American and U.S. Latina/o populations in linguistically and culturally appropriate ways.

Is this for me?

Courses are regularly offered during the late afternoon and evening hours in order to allow students to pursue the M.A. degree on a part-time basis. Requirements include native or near-native proficiency in written and oral Spanish, as well as a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution.


The linguistic and cultural skills our students develop lead to career advancement and enhanced opportunities in education, government, international business, and the culture industries.
