The Americas / Las Américas

MA The Americas / Las Américas

This programme combines a theory-based education with the practiceoriented application of methods for research in and between the fields of North American and Latin American Studies. It provides  graduate students with the basics of the comparative discipline of Inter-American Studies and with the expertise necessary for differentiated research in this area. In regional and interregional core units,  students focus on the history, politics, societies, and the cultures and literatures of North and Latin America, and learn to place them in a hemispheric, transnational context. In language classes, students learn to speak and write academic English and Spanish.
