In fact, students can chose to focus on any of the countries in the region, depending on their research interests.

Why study Latin American Studies at Leiden University?

Taught by scholars from Leiden University's internationally-acclaimed Faculty of Humanities, and including collaboration from visiting experts on Latin America, the master in Latin American Studies explores the most current social, political, linguistic and cultural developments shaping Latin America today. You may choose from one of three disciplinary tracks:

  • Cultural Analysis in Latin America
  • Public Policies in Latin America
  • Language Variation and Bilingualism

Three broad tracks ensure a deep theoretical and methodological underpinning, allowing students to specialise in their areas of interest. The tracks tie in with the teaching and research expertise in our programme. In addition to the mandatory courses within each track, students can broaden or deepen their knowledge through a wide choice of electives, self-devised fieldwork and their thesis.
