Graduate Programs

The department offers a Master of Arts degree in Foreign Languages and Literatures, with a specialization in Spanish. Specializing in any of these disciplines signals a unique program of study, which is serviced by the corresponding graduate faculty of the Spanish sections of the department. The mission of the graduate program is to educate students in one of the languages, cultures, and literatures of these two disciplines at the highest possible level, to provide students with a broad knowledge base from which to pursue more-specialized studies, and to offer a depth of experience in scholarship that will advance their future professional activities. The department's excellent placement record attests to its commitment to the intellectual and professional formation of its graduate students.
