Master's in Latin American Studies

The Master program in Latin American Studies provides students with important knowledge about the history, literature and music of Latin American societies, while also examining social anthropology issues. It lays the theoretical, empirical and linguistic foundation for enabling students to understand the variety of cultural forms and practices of the European conquerers, settlers and immigrants, the indigenous population and contemporary hybrid and multicultural Latin American societies. The Master program builds upon the knowledge attained by students through a Bachelor program in history, language and literature, social anthropology or musicology.
