Print Version Print
College of Liberal Arts | School of Language, Culture, and Society


Graduate Areas of Concentration

Contemporary Hispanic studies

The MA degree in Contemporary Hispanic Studies provides an alternative to traditional pre-doctoral programs focused on literary theory or linguistics.

Based on the multidimensional approach to language education promoted in the National Standards for Foreign Language Education, this program brings together theoretical knowledge and practical skills in a single program designed to prepare students for further graduate study or for careers in education, migrant programs, nongovernmental organizations, and other sectors affected by rapidly changing demographics. The integrated minor provides additional exploration of themes related to intercultural communication from a broad, interdisciplinary perspective.



The Master of Arts in Contemporary Hispanic Studies requires completion of 48 credits of graduate-level course work. A 15-credit integrated minor emphasizing intercultural studies must also be completed.
