Through an emphasis on Spanish language, literature, and culture, our program fosters communicative abilities, intercultural competence and global awareness among students. The interdisciplinary focus of the faculty enhances graduate education by encouraging alternate cultural perspectives that complement such areas of study as Business, Social and Behavioral Sciences, Law, Education, and the Humanities among others.
Our Spanish M.A. program is a gateway for students to internationalize their degree in a way that will not only help them better understand a globalized society but will also make them more competitive for career opportunities as they enter a global economy. We offer students real world opportunities to combine and apply Spanish language ability, cultural knowledge, and career skills.
The ability to speak Spanish fluently can be an asset in today’s global economy and make individuals more competitive in the job market. Graduates in Spanish, one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, pursue careers in business, education, government, and the nonprofit sector, while others pursue Ph.D. & Ed.D. degrees.
We offer competitive Graduate Teaching Assistantships with a full tuition waiver.
