Graduate Program Overview

The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures offers graduate study in Spanish leading to the Master of Arts degree. The program is designed to provide students with a broad background in Spanish language, literature, culture, and language teaching methodology. The majority of the department’s graduates have entered teaching careers, continued on to doctoral studies, or secured a position in business or government.

Graduate Students

Students in the Department’s graduate program form a small and relative intimate group. There is a personal and caring atmosphere here in which graduate students interact closely with both faculty and undergraduates. Graduate seminars are kept small, averaging ten to twelve students. Students are given individual guidance throughout their course study. Each student works directly with the Director of Graduate Studies, who serves as the adviser for their graduate program.

Accelerated Degree Program

Students in the Languages, Literature, and Cultures (Spanish) program may apply to the ADP program in their Junior year. Students must have a GPA of 3.00 or higher to be considered eligible to apply. For more information about the program please visit the Graduate School's website.
