Latin American and Ancient American Studies

The degree program Latin American and Ancient American Studies provides students with extensive knowledge of the Latin American cultures from the pre-Hispanic indigenous societies to the literatures and cultural processes of the present. The program is a combination of ancient American studies/ethnology and Hispanic studies that is unique among German universities.

Besides learning methods of academic research and relevant expertise, students of the program explore and discuss relevant theories of ethnology, culture, language and literature. Moreover, depending on students’ specific interests, individual areas can be treated in greater depth later on in the degree program.

To complement such areas of study, in addition to courses in Spanish language practice, students may also take introductory classes in the Amerind languages of Latin America (Náhuatl, Yucatec Maya, K‘iche‘ Maya and Quechua) For purposes of career orientation or to further improve their Spanish proficiency, it is recommended that students seek out internships or spend time abroad.

Possible lines of work:

Economic/culture management, journalism, press/public relations/marketing, communications (advertising, PR, translating), media, book sector (publishers, libraries, book trade), educational institutions, adult education, international organizations and public authorities, academia (teaching/research at universities, research institutions, etc.)

University entrance qualification (e.g. Abitur)

German language proficiency (CEFR level C1)


At the University of Bonn, multilingualism and cultural diversity are considered to be valuable resources that complement subject-specific qualifications. This is why, in addition to curricular language modules, students have access to a diverse range of language-learning offers, including the independent-study offers at the Center for Language Learning (Sprachlernzentrum, SLZ) in which they can autonomously learn a foreign language or enhance existing language skills. Furthermore, students can apply for the “Certificate of Intercultural Competence” free of charge, which promotes extra-curricular and interdisciplinary activities of international or intercultural nature.
