We offer a master degree in Latin American Studies at Jawaharlal Nehru University. 


Although Latin American Studies as a full-fledged programme was introduced in 1971 in the School of International Studies (SIS) from Jawaharlal Nehru University, academic interest in the area and preparatory work towards this end began as far back as 1955 when the Department of American History and Institutions was established. 

Key Features

  • Intended to stimulate interest in the North American affairs, in time, the study of 'special' historic relations that the US had with its neighbouring countries inevitably prompted some forward-looking faculty members of the Department to underline the special need for training in Latin American Studies too and emphasise the favourable expertise that the Department enjoyed to provide such training.

Programme Structure

Courses include: 
  • A Survey of Latin American History
  • Government & Politics in Latin America
  • Contemporary Economic Problems of Latin America
  • Process of Political and Economic Restructuring in Latin America
  • US Economic Policy Towards Latin America
  • Brazil Since 1930s
