CERTIFICATE IN LATIN AMERICAN STUDIES
The rapid growth in relations between the United States and Latin American countries has created the need for professionals who are able to bridge both cultures. TAMIU has responded to that need by offering a Certificate in Latin American Studies. This certificate provides students with a concentrated expertise for a variety of careers in business, government, and public service related to Latin America.
TAMIU's international faculty and student body and its location in Laredo, on the US-Mexico border, make this an especially attractive location for Latin American Studies. Students can observe international business first hand in one of the busiest inland ports in America, study dozens of government agencies on both sides of the border, and interact with a wide variety of public service organizations.
