The study programme of CEDLA is divided into Bachelor's and Master's courses. Bachelor's courses are given in Dutch, and Master's courses in English.
In addition to the Introductory course (Basiscursus), there are various other courses offered at the Bachelor level. These can be combined to lead to a minor in Latin American Studies.
Most of the Master's courses at CEDLA are seminars that are closely related to the on-going research of each of the CEDLA research staff members. It is also possible to take a 15-month Master of Arts in Latin American Studies at CEDLA, the CMP.
There are also other possibilities for study and research such as intensive seminars and guided literature courses (Lecturas Guiadas of Tutorials). Supervision is also given for internships and research training, fieldwork research in Latin America, and writing a thesis.
From 18 April 2013, the European Journal of Latin American and Caribbean Studies | Revista Europea de Estudios Latinoamericanos y del Caribe (ERLACS) will be an online Open Access journal with a new website: www.erlacs.org
ERLACS is a well-known international journal for Latin American and Caribbean studies published since 1965 by the Centre for Latin American Research and Documentation (CEDLA).
In addition to scholarly social science articles, there are short exploratory pieces about current themes and an extensive book section. ERLACS publishes articles in English and Spanish, and is known as a source of important empirical research and theoretical innovation.
Now, 48 years since its establishment, ERLACS is going completely online and will be accessible for a broad public readership.
