CEDLA Education Programme 2017 - 2018

CEDLA has a broad and interdisciplinary offer in courses, in which important Latin American topics are discussed and are closely linked to the research of CEDLA staff members. The courses are accessible for students of all Dutch universities and at a fee also for others interested.

The different Bachelor courses can be combined into a Minor Latin American Studies of 30 ECTs. The minor can serve as a preparation for the CEDLA Master’s Programme in Latin American Studies. The minor consists of several Bachelor courses, which maybe supplement with a literature assignment. Following the introductory course Understanding Latin America Today is an obligatory part of the Minor. Therefore, students who intent to follow the Minor programme should register timely for this course.

CEDLA also offers alternative education activities, such as intensive seminars and guided reading classes (lecturas guiadas). Furthermore, CEDLA staff members can also be available to supervise internships, fieldwork in Latin America or the writing of a thesis.
