CMP Info Meeting
The CEDLA Master’s Programme (CMP) offers a multi-disciplinary Master of Arts programme in Latin American Studies, and is given in English. The CMP lasts 15 months and earns 75 European credits (ECTS). Attention is given to the most important issues in the region, including the characteristics of the Latin American continent, and the way in which recent processes of globalization have changed the conditions in the region. As part of their research project, students will conduct fieldwork in Latin America for three months. Students who successfully earn 40 ECTs within the set time limit are eligible for a research grant of €1000 for expenses incurred during their research in Latin America. The CMP is a post-initial Master’s and has been accredited by the NVAO. It is registered with the Central Register of Higher Educational Schooling (CROHO).
The CMP and CEDLA’s research programme are closely related. Both focus on contemporary processes in Latin America with a historical perspective. CEDLA’s teachers conduct research regularly in a large range of countries in the region, where they have a broad academic network. Their research, expertise and contacts offer students ample opportunities to connect with local institutions and scholars. In accordance with CEDLA’s research mission and the research experiences of its staff, the goal of the CMP is to enhance students’ knowledge and insights on social transformations in Latin America, not only through lectures and discussions, but also by learning how to gather and analyse information in the daily setting of Latin American society, according to academic and ethical principles. The CMP is strongly research-driven and is devoted largely to the students’ own research projects in the region. The “CMP Information Guide” is now available for download in PDF.
