Course content

The master programme in Latin American Studies at Leiden University offers in-depth expertise on the Latin American region.

Explore current developments in Latin America

Taught by scholars from Leiden University's internationally-acclaimed Faculty of Humanities as well as our partner universities in 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

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

A substantial part of the programme is taught in Spanish and Portuguese: another reason why this programme attracts ambitious students from all over the world. Small classes ensure a high level of interaction between you, your international peers, and your lecturers – creating an exceptionally stimulating and supportive learning environment.
