Main focus

; Graduates of this master’s programme will have an advanced knowledge and a solid theoretical-practical grasp of models, methods, and techniques for the analysis of Latin American culture and history as well as of its characteristics, authors, and most relevant artistic and literary periods. They will have an in-depth understanding of the legal foundations of the culture and the different policies that the public sector has applied to foster its development. Graduates will be able to identify the different organisms for the cultural management of the Latin American context and the possible types of intervention, which will allow them to mobilise resources for cultural management. Finally, graduates will be capable of respecting cultural diversity in Latin America, value its literary manifestations as a social and cultural product of great relevance, and appreciate its importance as a model of cultural integration.


Students that have completed the second cycle have the following competencies: – Have demonstrated knowledge and understanding that is founded upon a basis or opportunity for originality in developing and/or applying ideas, often within a research context. – Can apply their acquired knowledge and understanding, and problem solving abilities in new or unfamiliar environments within broader (or multidisciplinary) contexts related to their field of study. – Have the ability to integrate knowledge and handle complexity, and formulate judgments with incomplete or limited information, but that include reflecting on social and ethical responsibilities linked to the application of their knowledge and judgments. – Can communicate their conclusions, and the knowledge and rationale underpinning these, to specialist and non-specialist audiences clearly and unambiguously. – Have the learning skills to allow them to continue to study in a manner that may be largely self-directed or autonomous.
