The University is noted for its strong international studies programs. The Center for Latin American Studies is one of 10 federally-funded programs of its sort in the United States. It coordinates the activities of 60 faculty members who offer some 150 courses on Latin America. Graduate students enrolled in the Center's interdisciplinary programs have at their disposal the unique resources of the Latin American Library, the Middle American Research Institute and the Mesoamerican Ecology Institute (a newly-created unit which sponsors scientific research in Mexico and Central America). In addition, the Center offers numerous opportunities for student field experience in Latin America. The Tulane University Graduate School participates in exchange programs with the University of Strasbourg, France and the Free University of Berlin, West Germany, which offer the exchange student a stipend plus tuition for one academic year.

New Orleans is the second largest port in the country. Governed in the past by the French and the Spanish, the city still expresses this European influence in its architecture, food, and way of life. The city also offers many year-round entertainments. There is the New Orleans Philharmonic Symphony, Opera Guild, The City Ballet, The New Orleans Museum of Art, The New Orleans theatre, and professional and collegiate sports. The two grand celebrations each year are the Mardi Gras and the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Overview
