Admission and degree requirements

A student must have completed at least 12 semester hours of advanced work in the field concerned to be admitted into the graduate program. Applicants are evaluated following a holistic review which includes several factors, none of which are given greater weight than any of the others: undergraduate GPA, GRE test scores, a 250-word statement in Spanish, a one-page curriculum vitae and completion of 12 hours of advanced undergraduate course work in Spanish. Undergraduate students anticipating entrance into graduate work in Spanish should take the GRE in the final term/semester of their senior year. In the event that the examination has not been taken before application is made, the student should take it no later than the following administration.

The applicant has the choice of the following programs:

  1. 36 semester hours, including 6 hours of thesis; at least 24 hours of course work must be completed in the major; a minor of 6 hours is permitted; or
  2. 36 hours of course work, without thesis; at least 30 hours must be earned in the major; a minor of 6 hours is permitted.

A master’s degree candidate in Spanish must take a written comprehensive examination in the major field or select the thesis option.

With the approval of the chair of the department, the master’s thesis may be written in Spanish.
