In the master’s programme in Latin American Studies at Leiden University you will focus on key social, political, linguistic and cultural developments which are currently shaping the complex reality of Latin America.
I came to the LAC having studied a B.A. in Political Science and Public Administration in Mexico, where I also worked as a researcher and teacher before starting an MPhil in Latin American Studies. I graduated in 2006 and moved on to a DPhil in Sociology, also at Oxford, which I hope to complete in 2010.
