The programme

Students seeking the MA in Romance Languages do so in order to specialize in Italian, Portuguese, Romance Linguistics, or a combination of languages. In this degree the study of any two Romance languages must be combined. Students seeking an MA in Romance Languages take five courses in a major area: Italian literature, Brazilian and Portuguese literatures, French and Francophone literatures, French linguistics, or Spanish and Latin American literatures. Four additional courses are taken in a second Romance language. Students are guided through the program by their faculty advisor. Most students who want a chance to teach are able to do so as departmental teaching assistants while completing their degree. A teaching assistantship offers a tuition waiver and a stipend.
