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

Applicants who have earned their first degree (bachelor’s degree or equivalent) from a university (or an equivalent institution) where the language of instruction is not German must present a B2 (CEFR) 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 Social and Cultural Anthropology, History, Literature and Cultural Studies, Brazilian Studies, Gender Studies, Sociology, Political Science and Economics with subject specialisation and the development of region-specific competences. Thematic emphasis is placed on the historical, political, and social transformation processes as well as the cultural dynamics of Latin America in the ever-changing global context. In doing so, transregional and global processes of integration and interdependence, changing ideologies, and questions related to the field of Gender Studies are given special attention.
