Today, research and scientific dissemination require a wide approach to various kinds of media. Therefore, as a part of the Master of InterAmerican Studies / Estudios InterAmericanos, students are involved in analyzing and creating media projects.
Each winter semester the module of "Introduction to InterAmerican Studies" is offered. This course includes student participation in a group project whose objective is the creation of a media project (in the form of documentaries, radio programs, websites, etc.). The first year students design and conduct their own research as they work to implement the methodology of InterAmerican Studies.
With the aim of completing the Master of Inter-American Studies program, students must complete a thesis project in which they are required to apply the Inter-American methodology. The student is given five months to prepare their thesis, which should be approximately seventy pages in length.
In this section you can find some of the theses previously completed in the program.
