About the Program
Students in the Latin American and Latino Studies program of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) are encouraged to develop a program that is both international and comparative in perspective and that takes into account the heterogeneous cultural experiences of people living in the vast territory loosely termed Latin America, as well as of those people living in the United States who identify themselves as Latino/a.
