Presentation

The Master’s Program in Latin American Studies is an initiative of the Institute of Latin American Studies and the Department of International Relations and European Integration of the National School of Political and Administrative Studies and is the first program of this kind in Romania.

We emphasize that this program is bilingual, in Spanish and English, so that the courses are held in two internationally used languages, vital for facilitating students’ access to information, documents and resources of the Latin America and Caribbean region. The bilingual courses also create the possibility for students to come from other countries than Romania.

The program aims to become a regional point of interest for people who want to complete their training in international relations and to acquire expertise in Latin American issues. Designing such a program came from the need to meet the demands and changes occurring in the international system, the states in Latin America becoming more interesting for the international community.

We will try through the courses to familiarize the students with developments in Latin America and the Caribbean, to analyze phenomena that led the various economic, social and political activities, to predict the relations between states in this area and other relevant actors in the international system.

The competences that will be acquired during the master degree can be applied by involving in the several activities which are held by the Institute of Latin-American Studies, part of the National University.

After graduation, graduates of this program have a wide range of opportunities for entering the labor market, both in the public area, within the Latin American and Caribbean divisions of government institutions such as the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and in the private sector, especially given the increase in trade relations between the EU and the region of Latin America and the Caribbean. Also, graduates may represent a valuable human resource for Academia.
