Program Description

MA Latin American Studies

Leiden University

The Master's in Latin American Studies at Leiden University offers advanced language skills, specialised knowledge and real-world experience of Latin American culture and society.

Explore current developments in Latin America

Taught by scholars from Leiden University's internationally-acclaimed Humanities department as well as our partner universities in Latin American, this master's offers the latest insights on the social, political, linguistic and cultural developments shaping Latin America.

You may choose from one of three disciplinary tracks:

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

Fieldwork research in Latin America

All courses take a comparative, area studies approach to ensure a critical understanding of the issues studied – many of which are unfolding as you study them. A research trip to Latin America immerses you in one of the region's languages and cultures while developing your ability to conduct high-quality scientific research and communicate professionally and effectively.

A supportive environment

Outstanding resources and a high level of one-to-one interaction with your lecturers ensure you reach your full potential as an academic or future practitioner – just some of the reasons why this programme attracts talented students from around the world.

An important focus is on developing your fluency in Spanish. Several courses and seminars are taught in Spanish and you are encouraged to conduct fieldwork for your MA thesis in Latin America.
