Latin American & Caribbean Studies Graduate Diploma

About Program Degrees Offered and Application Requirements

Diploma programs are open to students in any relevant graduate program or to those who have a general interest in graduate-level work. For diplomas that are part of a graduate degree (concurrent), please contact the relevant graduate program office. For graduate diplomas that can be pursued on their own (stand-alone, direct entry), applications are submitted online. More

York University offers formal accreditation at the graduate level of specialized knowledge about Latin America and the Caribbean. This is accomplished through the Graduate Diploma, which was established in 1986.

In addition to the facilities normally available to graduate students, diploma candidates may use the Documentation Centre and other facilities at the Centre for Research on Latin America and the Caribbean (CERLAC), including subscriptions to the LACYORK and GRADLAC listservs. There are regular graduate student seminars and students in the program are welcome to attend any of the CERLAC seminars and workshops. There are also several informal gatherings every year.

Because the number of applicants greatly exceeds the number of positions available, meeting our minimum admission requirements is not a guarantee of admission.
