Our curricular programs — International Studies, Middle East and North African Studies (MENA), and Latin American and Caribbean Studies (LACS) — offer interdisciplinary curricula as well as research, programming, visiting scholars, graduate mentors, and professional development.
International Studies program
The International Studies program is the gateway to the study of global affairs in the Weinberg College at Northwestern. Our mission is to encourage and support student education and scholarship in international affairs. We are open to all Weinberg students and to students from across the university.
Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program (LACS)
Northwestern's Latin American and Caribbean Studies Program (LACS) has a dual purpose. One is to support a spirited and diverse community of faculty and graduate students whose research covers the culture, history, and politics of Latin America and the Caribbean.
