The Romance Languages program of the University of Oregon offers options leading to the degree of master of arts (MA) in romance languages, French, Italian, or Spanish.


About the Program

Students entering the M.A. program may specialize in French, Italian, or Spanish, or combine two of these fields for a major in Romance Languages. The Master of Arts program consists of:

  • Coursework
  • Fall Forum Presentation and Paper
  • Written Examinations
  • M.A. Research Project

The Romance Languages program of the University of Oregon is designed to be completed in two years. To help students navigate requirements, a faculty advisor is assigned by the department at the beginning of the first year. Students may change advisors later if they wish.

Programme Structure

  • Students whose knowledge of the language(s) (French and/or Italian and/or Spanish) is found to be deficient will be required to supplement this 52-hour program with an advanced writing class or additional study abroad/immersion.
  • All M.A. students must take the Second Language Teaching Methods course (RL 608) in the fall of their first year of graduate studies, and the Introduction to Literary Studies in Romance Languages (RL 620) in the winter term of their first year. All M.A. students must also take Romance Languages Colloquium (RL 623) as a two- or four-credit graded course. Finally, students must take one 2-credit Preparatory Reading course (RL 605) during the summer following their first year in the program. The remaining course work should be done in French or Italian or Spanish or Romance Language courses.
