Latin American Studies


Part of the specialisation programme under the Study Board of International Affairs, the interdisciplinary programme in Latin American Studies enables students to approach key issues confronting the region from multiple perspectives and study alongside our team of expert scholars. The course explores the main issues and dynamics of contemporary political and social issues in Latin America including the complex character of the society-environment nexus, new social movements and civil society organisations in the region, the politics of human rights and Latin American cultures and societies. Students undertaking the Latin American Studies pathway will develop skills and knowledge that will prepare them for a range of career paths in areas such as international trade, regional & multilateral institutions, the public sector, NGOs, etc.
