Interested in doing research on Latin American societies in an affordable way? Come to CEDLA - the little Latin America in Amsterdam - to develop your own project! 


The advanced Master's programme in Latin American Studies (MLAS) of CEDLA - University of Amsterdam will prepare you to become a critical researcher, to elaborate socially and academically relevant research plans, and to conduct field research in Latin America!  Through an interdisciplinary lens, you will learn about social transformations, design your own project, and carry out a short research project in this socially dynamic region. All students of the Master’s programme will be eligible for a research grant (1000 euros) to cover part of their fieldwork costs, but an additional scholarship may be available for those interested in joining one of the MLAS-affiliated research projects. With a small tuition fee of 3000 euros per year the Master’s programme provides a unique opportunity to have a Global North-South experience at a cost-effective way by training your academic skills in Amsterdam and applying them in Latin America!
