Spanish Graduate Programs

The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures offers multiple graduate programs in Spanish designed to empower you to succeed by embracing the challenges of a complex and changing world.

Our graduate programs with our renowned faculty combines classroom theory with hands-on learning with internships, and independent studies on your preferred areas. You will discover new and deeper issues, lead discussions, and identify and understand problems of the Hispanic world and history. Additionally, our programs will provide you with a broad set of general skills (writing, thinking, analyzing, etc.) valuable across a number of career paths throughout one’s life.

If you think you might be interested, I invite you to explore the many options we have to offer:

Master of Arts (MA) in Languages, Literatures, and Cultures with a Spanish Concentration: a versatile degree that would allow you to teach at the high school and college level, prepare you to pursue virtually any Ph.D. program in the Humanities, help to make you more attractive for high profile jobs outside the academic context.

Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) with concentration in Spanish Education: for those of you interested on teaching and acquiring your initial teaching licensure. Will allow you to teach up to college Spanish.

Master of Education (MEd) in Teacher Education with concentration in Spanish Education: for those who already hold an initial teaching licensure and are seeking an advanced licensure. Will allow you to teach up to college Spanish.

In addition we offer a Post-Baccalaureate certificate in Advanced Spanish and Hispanic Cultural Studies for those of you who may want to continue deepening your knowledge of the Hispanic language and culture but are not interested in pursuing a graduate degree.

Finally, don’t forget UNCG offers the VISIONS program that would allow you to take one, two or even up to three graduate courses in Spanish just for the fun of it. A great additional opportunity to continue with your Spanish without making a long commitment.

If you think you might be interested in any of these possibilities, or if you would like to talk and learn more about our graduate offerings, please visit explore our graduate course offerings or, even better, send me an email at to ask for any information you may want or schedule a meeting.
