This course is designed to meet the needs of two groups: those who have developed an interest in Latin America through study or work and wish to develop this for personal or professional reasons, and those who intend to proceed to a doctorate, and possibly an academic career in the field. The course seeks to provide participants with critical understanding of Latin America in all its complexity, and of the means and methods that have been devised to study and understand it better. The thesis is a very substantial element of the M.Phil. course, and the examination process and criteria for assessment of the thesis are accordingly rather more stringent than on Master’s programmes at most other Universities, where (in the UK) the thesis typically represents only a quarter of the year’s work.
