The master’s programme of Latin American Studies supports the teaching and research of the social, cultural, historical, and linguistic diversity of contemporary Latin America, a region of mind-blowing diversity and global impact.

We offer the unique opportunity to specialise in the Latin American region, including a global perspective and offering unique combination of multi-disciplinary expertise for the Netherlands in the field of Brazilian studies. In fact, students can chose to focus on any of the countries in the region, depending on their research interests.

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.

Fieldwork
