Alumni and Careers

JUAN VIVANCO - CLASS OF 2021

I am extremely grateful to UNCC and the LTAM program. Without the education I received in the past couple of years, securing a job like this would have been very difficult. The competition for jobs in DC is fierce!

Juan Vivanco is a Program Associate at the International Research Exchange (IREX) in Washington, D.C.


DANIEL COZART - CLASS OF 2011

UNC Charlotte's M.A. in Latin American Studies program exceeded my expectations. My professors were specialists in a variety of fields, and they all took the time to meet with me and discuss my research interests and professional plans outside of class. In short, the program was intellectually stimulating and challenging while also nurturing and supportive. Thanks to the consistent support and professional guidance of my professors, I was quickly on the path to a successful academic career upon completing the degree.

Daniel Cozart is an instructor at UNC Charlotte.  He received his PhD in History at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM.
