We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Latin American Society & Culture involve advanced study of the cultural and societal institutions, activities and movements associated with, or originating from, Latin America and its dependencies.
Related subjects include Latin American Literature, American Studies and Latin American Studies. Entry requirements normally include an appropriate undergraduate degree such as Languages and Literature, or Cultural Studies.
Latin America is characterised by an assemblage of Romance Languages and associated cultural influences, which include French, Spanish, and Portuguese. Due to the multicultural nature of the country, there are a broad range of traditions, cultural outlooks and societal infrastructures which postgraduates can explore.
For example, you may focus your studies on the Pre-Columbian communities of Mexico and Peru, such as the social hierarchies of the Mayan and Aztec societies. Or, you might wish to research the formal and informal expressions of cultures and traditions, including the literature, art, music and dances across Latin American cultures.
Careers may include scholarly research in academia or on behalf of heritage institutions such as mecums, as well as publishing, journalism, and public relations. You might also explore roles in the tourism industry, such as the management of historical landmarks.
