The Department of Spanish & Portuguese Studies teaches some of the world’s most essential languages: Portuguese is spoken by 220 million people worldwide and Spanish is spoken by 480 million, including one in six people in the United States.
Undergraduate students in our department not only acquire linguistic proficiency in foreign languages, they also develop critical thinking and communication skills, as well as a deeper awareness of cultural diversity. For their part, faculty and graduate students undertake research on topics related to literature, culture, and linguistics, contributing in this way to the university’s primary mission of creating new knowledge
