Master conjoint LAGLOBE

LAGLOBE - Latin American and Europe in a Global World

Ouverture prévue à la rentrée 2018-2019

Duration 24 months

LAGLOBE is an academic programme offering high-level education and training in social sciences and humanities on global phenomena in Europe and Latin America (LA) and the relationship between the two regions. It is founded on the democratic and open values of the European Union (EU) and on the conviction that students, scholars and actors from these two parts of the world have much to learn from each other, and that it is indispensable to include their theoretical and practical knowledge in order to understand the global phenomena that shape our time.

LAGLOBE Master Programme aims at training a new generation of specialists eager to acquire a deep understanding of EU-CELAC (Community of Latin American and Caribbean States) cooperation challenges and further extend existing partnerships and networks among their nations and individuals from the academic, professional and political worlds. The programme will provide students with a global perspective of existing interactions between the regions through courses, seminars, conferences and professional training on both sides of the Atlantic. Lectures will be enriched at the member universities through both intra-European mobility of teachers and visiting lecturers from Latin America.

LAGLOBE will contribute to the establishment of an EU-CELAC common research area. Its outstanding training and research offer is eager to attract talented students and contribute to EU attractiveness in the Latin America region and in the world, demonstrating that the EU is willing to assume its responsibility on the American continent in a blurred global context.

During the first semester, at the University of Salamanca, all students will be provided with the theoretical bases, through a series of introductory courses on Latin American and Europe, including international relations, economy, communication and literature in Latin America and the analysis of the institutions, culture and values as well as the trade foreign policies in Europe.

For their second semester, students will attend Stockholm University where they will follow courses focusing on current challenges in Latin America, with special attention given to gender and post-colonialism, democratisation, citizenship and comparative regional integration.

Along the third semester, students will gather at the Sorbonne Nouvelle University in Paris where they will complete a series of methodological courses that will allow them to tackle specific issues from their preferred theoretical approach towards the writing of their final research thesis. They will also take professionalising that will prepare them for their insertion in the job market.

The fourth semester will be dedicated to fieldwork research or an internship hosted by our academic and non-academic partners in Latin America and then to the writing of the master's degree thesis.

Students will be awarded a multiple degree.
