We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Latin American Literature examine the writers, literary traditions and movements which originated in, or are influenced by Latin America and its culture(s).
Related subjects include Latin American Society & Culture, Latin American Studies, and Spanish Literature. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Cultural Studies or Languages and Literature.
The oral and written Literatures of Latin America encompass many languages and cultures, predominantly Spanish, Portuguese and indigenous languages of the Americas. As such, there are many topics for postgraduates to specialise in, including both contemporary and historical literatures.
For example, you could explore different literary traditions such as magical realism, for which the country is renowned. Or you may even analyse movements such as the Latin American Boom which occurred in the 1960s and 70s.
Alternatively, you may wish to investigate more archaic literary forms, such as the oral traditions of Pre-Columbian Aztecs and Mayans. You could also examine the origins of many of the creole literatures prevalent in Latin America.
Careers may include roles in academia and publishing, journalism and public relations, or even roles such as curating and archiving for museums and other heritage organisations.
