Master of Hispanic Studies (M.H.S.)

This degree consists of at least 36 credit hours and, while offering an introduction to the linguistic, literary and cultural heritage of Spain and Spanish America, places added emphasis on perfecting audio-lingual skills as well as practice in reading, expository writing, and oral presentation in Spanish. It prepares students for a variety of careers, for example, high school teaching, employment in the business world--which is experiencing an ever-increasing demand for well-prepared, bilingual personnel--and also for further graduate study. Students may choose an optional concentration consisting of no more than 6 additional credit hours in a graduate field or fields related to their major program, for example, English as a Second Language, history, political science, business, or women's studies.

Master of Arts in Spanish (M.A.)

This research-oriented degree requires at least 30 credit hours in Spanish at the 6000 and 7000 levels (including thesis credits) and a master's thesis. It is intended for students possessing the B.A. degree in Spanish who desire to pursue a traditional approach to the language and its literature. The program emphasizes the comprehensive study of linguistics, literature, or cultural studies with major consideration given to history, analysis, criticism, and theory. The M.A. degree also serves as preparation for doctoral study at other institutions.
