SUMMARY

A degree in Latin American Studies is a valuable choice and ordinarily a needed first step for undergraduates wishing to pursue a career as a latin-american studies teacher, a spanish interpreter/translator, or a social worker. In fact, latin american studies is a ​unique major ranking as the 285th most popular major. Last year, there were 480 latin american studies diplomas received. In-state tuition for latin american studies at private schools is, on average, 5 times more pricey than their public rivals.

There are 151 institutions which offer this degree. 151 universities is fairly average in terms of the number of institutions which offer each degree. If you're hoping to surround yourself with other latin american studies undergrads, consider looking at institutions in California which have more undergrads admitted to latin american studies than any other state. More generally, the best region to study latin american studies is in the Far West region with California State University-Chico, California State University-Northridge, and University of Washington-Seattle Campus best representing the region. Interestingly, our pick of the top conference to major in latin american studies is the Pacific-12 Conference with University of Arizona, University of California-Los Angeles, and University of Washington-Seattle Campus representing the conference. On that topic, our choice for the best school for latin american studies is Columbia University in the City of New York. You may also want to check out our list of best colleges.

The best school does not mean it is the best school for you. There are many more factors to weigh when deciding on college. Features like campus amenities, transportation services, and food could modify your choice on where to go to school. At Authority, we have examined the pros and cons for you. If, for example, you want to know which latin american studies college has the top college campus, the answer is New York University. If, for example, you are mostly interested in which college is home to the finest campus, then we have a whole list dedicated to that. We have carefully pored through student reviews, government databases, professor reviews, and more so we can compare all U.S. majors in an unbiased and informative way. Here you can find our comprehensive list for the universities with the best student life and from that list, our pick for the college with the best student life for latin american studies is University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Curious why? Continue scrolling to learn more about Authority's top recommendations. Many of our conclusions will probably shock you.

If cost is a significant deciding factor in your decisions, you might consider avoiding Columbia University in the City of New York. Columbia University in the City of New York is our most expensive college for latin american studies, at least for out of state attendance. We do have a page for the most expensive schools that could put the price tag of Columbia University in the City of New York into perspective. You may also want to know that latin american studies is the 126th most expensive major in the United States, with an average expense of $36,200. On a broader scale, the most expensive state for latin american studies in the country is Pennsylvania with costs at the primary college, Dickinson College, of $55,948. To zoom out even further, the most costly region of the U.S. for latin american studies is the New England region which is best demonstrated with Colby College with a cost of $54,870, Brandeis University with a cost of $55,340, and Dartmouth College with a cost of $55,605.

Our cheapest region for latin american studies is the Rocky Mountains region which is represented by Brigham Young University-Provo with a cost of $5,790 and University of Utah with a cost of $26,017. More optimistically, the most affordable school for latin american studies is Brigham Young University-Provo. Our comprehensive list of the most affordable schools can be explored here.

In-state learners can expect to pay in the neighborhood of $10,300 for a degree in latin american studies. That price grows by a lot to a median of $29,300 for an out-of-state public-school undergrad. Our selection for the school with the best value for latin american studies: Columbia University in the City of New York. On this page you can see our comprehensive list on the colleges we believe to be the best value in general. That being said, this discussion is predicated on being an out-of-state student. The value proposition changes when in-state tuition costs are considered, as such, we are using out-of-state tuition as the baseline.

Earnings for latin american studies students vary widely, but within two years leaving college students will typically make around $47,000. While there can be much variation in earnings potential; top positions can bring in up to $80,800. Even right out of college, the lowest end jobs within the latin american studies field earn $26,900, which could be worse. The top earning grads for latin american studies have come from Columbia University in the City of New York and if you want to find the schools with all of the highest earning graduates, Authority has that too.

The general diversity of latin american studies falls subpar, falling in the 50th percentile of all majors. The school with the highest composite diversity for latin american studies is New York University and here you can find our comprehensive list for the colleges with the most diversity. The overall financial diversity of the Latin American Studies major only ranks in the 45th percentile of all majors. Racial diversity is greater than financial diversity, ranking in the 49th percentile. Latino collegians make up the largest proportion at 57% of scholars studying latin american studies. Additionally, 73% of scholars pursuing a latin american studies major are women.

The median ranking of latin american studies professors is 3 stars, a score that is 25% less than the median across all majors; which is a subpar ranking. If you are interested in the most popular latin american studies instructor in the nation, look no further than Nayelli Castro-Ramirez from University of Massachusetts-Boston. This might be surprising, but the highest rated latin american studies professors according to students are found at University of Massachusetts-Boston. If we including information other than basic rankings we find that the university with the best professors for latin american studies is Columbia University in the City of New York. One can find an explanation of our evolving ranking methodology for the best overall professors here, along with many of the best instructors nationwide.

Finally, the most difficult college to get into for latin american studies is Columbia University in the City of New York. While we think of this list more as a novelty, we do have a general page of the hardest colleges to get into. That being said, here at Authority we do hope you believe that approaching college through a lens primarily formed from superlatives might create problems. We hope you look at some of our more focused pages on individual universities and read a few of Authority's helpful background articles on essential details to look out for as you progress with your college search.
