It provides students with a critical and theoretical foundation in literary, cultural studies and language pedagogy, ample opportunities for interdisciplinary work in areas of Hispanic literature and cultural studies. The Department prides itself on its small classes and warm, friendly atmosphere in which interaction between faculty and students is encouraged. In and out of class, students enjoy an open and supportive environment.
In addition to the Master's program, graduate certificates of advanced studies may be obtained. For information about all the graduate programs in Hispanic Studies contact the Director of Graduate Studies, Dr. Silvia Nagy-Zekmi
