Our program offers MA and PhD options in Spanish literature and culture, linguistics, as well as in Portuguese. We offer an exciting and innovating combination of research, teaching, and service opportunities to all our students. Our program is interdisciplinary by design, offering a variety of areas of specialization in literature, culture, film, theater, performance studies, Latinx and Border studies, gender and queer studies, race and indigenous studies, environmental studies, Lusophone studies, and translation. In both Iberian and Latin American/Latinx studies, our students can find a range of tracks that can fulfill their interests in theory, criticism, and practice. In Spanish Linguistics, students can choose different fields, including phonetics, phonology, syntax, historical languages, bilingualism, language variation and change, psycholinguistics, sociolinguistics, and second language acquisition. In 2020, we implemented a new MA portfolio in lieu of an exam, and our PhD preliminary exam and dissertation proposal process is streamlined to each student’s research interests. This new modality has helped our students find a faster route to writing their dissertation. It has also fostered stronger interdisciplinarity with other departments and programs on campus, facilitating our students’ progress and time-to-degree.
