Program Description

The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures’ graduate program in Spanish 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. Students in the program form a small and relatively intimate group. Graduate seminars are kept small, averaging ten students, and students are given individual guidance throughout their course of study.
