Spanish (Combined BA/MA)

The Dual Degree program in Spanish is an accelerated five-year option designed for students who wish to pursue baccalaureate and master’s degrees simultaneously. The Department of Spanish and Italian offers a Master of Arts degree in Spanish literature with a wide range of courses in Spanish and Spanish American literature as well as in literary theory, Hispanic linguistics, culture and pedagogy, and translation and interpreting. Conferences and lectures by Latin American and Spanish writers are an integral part of the cultural life of the MA program and students frequently have the opportunity to meet authors they have studied in class.
