It is organized primarily for students seeking a Ph.D. degree, although the M.A. degree is awarded in the course of a student’s progress. A small number of students are admitted who intend to complete the M.A. only as an advanced study for teaching in high schools or community colleges.

Research and teaching interests include all areas of Spanish and Latin American literature from its origins to the present. Faculty also have strong research and teaching profiles in the philosophy and practices of translation; cultural studies, including Latin American film, gender studies, theories of the body, historiography, and fiction; psychoanalysis; bilingualism and heritage language studies; Spanish in the US; sociolinguistics; and political philosophy.
