Did you know there are 19 Spanish/Portuguese speaking nations in America? These populations are growing and with them a growing need for specialists with knowledge of politics, relationships, power and globalisation and its effects on these populations. There are wide ranging careers to go into with a degree in Latin American Studies. These can be within diplomacy and civil service, advocacy, government and foreign embassies, or media relations and journalism. You can also go on to study a PhD in your chosen area of specialism and devote your career to becoming an expert.
A truly interdisciplinary degree, the Latin American Studies Programme draws on expertise from both Hispanic Studies in the School of Modern Languages and the Department of Politics and International Relations. The degree consists of both core courses (including Culture and Society in Latin America; Themes in Latin American Studies; Strategic Studies in Latin America) and a variety of electives (including Spanish language), which will allow students to tailor their own degree to their specific interests.
