For admittance to the master’s program applicants need to fulfill the following admission requirements:

  • Bachelor’s degree or an equivalent degree with at least 60 credit points in one of the following disciplines: ethnohistory, Brazilian studies, history, Caribbean studies, Latin American studies, political science, social and cultural anthropology, sociology, economics or literary and cultural studies.

  • Proof of Spanish or Portuguese language skills (level B2 CEFR) or similar.

Applicants whose first language is not German and who have earned their initial degree from a university (or equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German have to present a B2 (GER) German certificate.

Students do not pay any tuition fees, the university only charges semester fees and contributions each semester.

The master’s program in interdisciplinary Latin American studies links problem-oriented training in the disciplines of cultural anthropology, history, Literature Studies, Brazilian studies, Gender Studies, sociology, politics, or economics with regional foci and expert profiling. Thematic emphases are placed on the historical, political, and social transformation processes as well as the cultural dynamics of Latin America. In so doing, transregional and global processes of integration and interdependence, changing ideologies, and gender-specific questions are given special attention.
