The Department of World Languages & Cultures at Bowling Green State University offers an innovative Master of Arts degree in Spanish that includes academic mentoring by our graduate faculty at BGSU and the option of studying abroad to acquire cultural and linguistic skills through immersion.  


By the end of the MA program, students will be able to discuss critically and analytically, both orally and in writing, a variety of topics related to the Spanish language as well as Spanish-speaking cultures and literatures. 

At the Bowling Green State University, students will demonstrate advanced competence in the Spanish language and familiarity with the theoretical issues and research tools in the broad fields of literature, culture and linguistics from Spain and Latin America. 

By acquiring these skills we believe that our students become well prepared as global citizens and well equipped to succeed in a wide variety of careers that require sophisticated communication skills, cultural understanding, and critical thinking.
