Latin American Studies

Opslaan in favorieten

Latin American Studies focuses on the society, culture, politics and history of Latin America: a complex and multi-faceted region that is not always easy to understand. Farreaching economic reforms and rapid urbanisation coexist with peasant societies. Democratic and authoritarian tendencies exist side by side in politics, and often lead to surprising results and outcomes.

This minor is offered by the Faculty of Humanities. The faculty’s minors consist of 30 ECTS credits and earn you a second qualification that will be listed on the transcript accompanying your degree certificate.
