Examination in Latin-American Studies for the M.Phil. Degree (one-year course)
With the approval of the General Board and the Board of Graduate Studies, the regulations for the examination in Latin-American Studies for the M.Phil. Degree (one-year course) (Statutes and Ordinances, p. 472) have been amended as set out below. The purpose of the amendments is to convert the existing three-hour papers, which are taken under examination conditions, into exercises for which candidates will be allowed a longer period of time, during which they will have access to books and other source material ('take-home' examinations). The authorities responsible for the examination (the Degree Committee for the Faculty of Earth Sciences and Geography, and the Committee of Management of the Centre of Latin-American Studies) are satisfied that no candidate's preparation for the examination in 1998 is adversely affected by this change. The regulations have been amended, with immediate effect, as follows:
By amending sub-paragraph (b) so as to read:
||two written exercises, to be undertaken under conditions specified by the Degree Committee, on subjects chosen by the candidate, subject to the approval of the Degree Committee, from the following list:
3.Topics in Latin-American culture.
4.Economic issues in contemporary Latin America.*
5.Sociology and politics of Latin America.
6.Comparative history, 1810-1955: Argentina, Chile, and Venezuela.
8.A subject in Latin-American studies specified from time to time by the Degree Committee.
9.A subject in Latin-American studies specified from time to time by the Degree Committee.
Regulations 1(c) and 3.
By replacing in each case the words 'written papers' by the words 'written exercises'.
* Candidates offering this subject will be expected to have had previous training in Economics.
