Teaching Faculty

The Academic Programs offered through the UCLA International Institute allow students to focus on a particular area of study - either a specific geographic area, or a global comparative and issue-oriented approach - through a variety of disciplines across campus. The Institute also offers its own courses taught by core teaching faculty under the following subject areas: African Studies, International & Area Studies, International Development Studies, Global Health, Global Studies, and Latin American Studies.


A growing number of UCLA faculty have joint appointments through the International Institute as well as with another department on campus.  These faculty include:
