The Department of Spanish offers graduate programs leading to two degrees: Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy. MA and PhD students specialize in one of three fields:

  1. Spanish Peninsular Literature

  2. Latin American Literature

  3. Hispanic Linguistics

The application process for the Master of Arts program is competitive; meeting the minimum standards for admission does not guarantee acceptance. The admissions process for the Doctor of Philosophy program is competitive; it is based on a number of factors in addition to grades. The principal factors include the ability of the department to offer graduate work in the applicant’s preferred areas of interest, the availability of appropriate supervisory resources, and the suitability of the applicant in relation to the academic profile and programs of the department.

The department does not allow direct entry to the PhD program with a BA, nor does it allow MA students to transfer to the PhD program before the coursework for the MA is completed.
