The Department of Spanish and Portuguese is dedicated to the study and teaching of the languages, literatures, and cultures of the Hispanic heritage in all areas of the world, particularly on the continents of Europe and America. It maintains a strong commitment to the value of original research and professional instruction at all levels of its activities.
Whether studying for the B.A., M.A., or Ph.D. degree, students are given careful guidance in the choice of courses and in the preparation of a study program. The richness of Hispanic culture is amply represented in the extensive range of courses in language, linguistics, and literature. Although the literatures of Spain, Portugal, Brazil, and Spanish America predominate, courses are also offered in Chicano literature. The breadth of courses offered by the department allows undergraduate students to pursue many possible interests and enables graduate students to concentrate in depth in several areas of specialization.
The department’s courses are primarily designed to serve the five B.A. programs: B.A. in Spanish, B.A. in Spanish and Community and Culture, B.A. in Spanish and Linguistics, B.A. in Spanish and Portuguese, and B.A. in Portuguese, as well as to prepare students for its three graduate programs: M.A. in Spanish, M.A. in Portuguese, and Ph.D. in Hispanic Languages and Literatures. The courses are also functionally supportive of such interdepartmental programs as the B.A. program in Chicana and Chicano Studies, B.A. and M.A. programs in Latin American Studies, and M.A. and Ph.D. programs in Comparative Literature.
