Latin American Studies

Format: Campus

Program Description:

There are 19 Spanish/Portuguese speaking nations in America with Hispanic populations growing in North America and contributing increasingly to a growing global economy. Understanding various cultural, societal and political dimensions of Latin America and its populations is a rising requirement.

The MSc in Latin American Studies at the University of Aberdeen offers you a truly interdisciplinary postgraduate degree, as you study Latin American culture, development and the politics and international relations of the region. You will benefit from staff expertise from both Hispanic Studies in the School of Language, Literature, Music and Visual Culture and the Departments of Anthropology and Politics and International Relations. The MSc Latin American Studies is unique to a Scottish University and one of the few in the UK to have a wide interdisciplinary nature.

You will study core courses and a variety of electives. Ideally, you will come from a mix of diverse multidisciplinary undergraduate degrees to equip you to study further in Humanities, Visual Studies, Social Sciences, Anthropology and Politics and International Relations. You can take this programme as a Masters degree either full time or part time, or towards a PhD at Aberdeen.
