UNAM Boston

The Center for Mexican Studies UNAM Boston, is one of the 11 offices abroad that has Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (National Autonomous University of Mexico), in America, Asia and Europe.

As part of the internationalization strategy of UNAM and in order to serve the Mexican community abroad, the University of the Nation inaugurated, in 2018, this academic and cultural embassy hosted generously by the University of Massachusetts in Boston, the great public university of the city.


In order to establish academic and cultural links between UNAM and institutions in the New England and North Atlantic Region, the primary functions of the University headquarters in Boston are the following:

1. The teaching, evaluation and certification of Spanish for foreigners.

2. The establishment of links with prestigious Higher Education Institutions, to develop double degree or degree programs, in accordance with the provisions of the UNAM regulations. ​


3. The strengthening of the UNAM internationalization project through the dissemination of its activities through the promotion of the exchange of researchers and teaching staff. ​


4. The link, collaboration and academic exchange with universities and higher education institutions, government agencies or any educational or cultural entity from various countries and regions of the world. ​


5. Support for the Mexican community abroad, through academic, cultural and social programs; the organization of university groups of alumni and Mexican talent, among others. ​


6. The promotion and dissemination of studies of Mexican culture, particularly those oriented to the relations of Mexico with the country or region where they are located. The development of teaching programs for the language and culture of the country in which the headquarters are located, for the benefit of the university community, favoring student mobility.

As there is a growing interest in the region to include Mexico within the fields of knowledge of science, medicine, art and other disciplines, we urge the University community to put Boston in their life and take advantage of the bridge that the University of the Nation has tended with the global center of creativity and innovation, where prestigious universities such as Harvard, MIT, BU and with more than 60 universities within the same state of Massachusetts are located.

Likewise, we invite researchers, professors, students, artists, entrepreneurs and other members of the New England community, to meet the oldest University in Latin America, the National Autonomous University of Mexico and to get involved in their work, contributing to the formation of bilateral collaboration networks in academia and culture.

Through my race shall the spirit speak.
