Areas of Graduate Study: Hispanic Literatures

The Program in Hispanic Literatures combines rigorous training in scholarship and critical methodologies, delivering a broad and solid preparation for a vibrant career in Hispanic Literary and Cultural Studies. We offer an M.A. and Ph.D. in Hispanic Literary and Cultural Studies. Our growing program currently includes twelve faculty members whose expertise covers various fields of study and theoretical approaches. Our faculty to student ratio (approximately one to four) enables students to develop close working relations with experts in their area of research interest.
The program sustains a vibrant intellectual life with invited lectures, scholars in residence and conferences. Graduate students and faculty participate in various research groups, including the Working Group in Iberoamerican Imperial Histories. Advanced graduate students also present their current research in an informal lecture series. Our students explore a variety of theoretical approaches to literary and cultural analysis through the Center for Theoretical Inquiry in the Humanities, Comparative Literature, Cultural Studies and Cognitive Studies. Doctoral students become familiar with other disciplinary perspectives by taking courses in American Studies, Communication and Culture (including film studies), Comparative Literature, Gender Studies, History, Latin American and Caribbean Studies, Latino Studies, Medieval Studies and Renaissance Studies. Within our Department, students can also take courses in Portuguese and Catalan language and literature.
