The graduate program in Hispanic Studies offers opportunities for advanced study in the literatures of Spain and Spanish America, leading to the Ph.D and to the M.A. (with or without thesis).
The UBC Library has extensive holdings in all areas of Hispanic studies, with particularly strong holdings in periodicals and Latin-American studies, in both Spanish and Portuguese. The Department has a reading room for graduate students, containing basic texts, scholarly collections, and reference works.
The program makes available a list of courses to be offered as early as possible, usually in February of the preceding academic year.
Students admitted to the Ph.D. degree program normally possess an M.A. degree in Hispanic Studies or a related area, with clear evidence of research ability or potential. Transfer from the M.A. to the Ph.D. program is permitted under regulations set by the Faculty of Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies and the Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies.
Part-time Doctoral Classification is also available. Students who wish to be classified as part-time must obtain approval from their proposed supervisor and graduate program advisor as part of the admission process.
The program may be pursued by full- or part-time students.
The Ph.D. program consists of coursework, a qualifying examination, a comprehensive examination, the PhD thesis proposal defense, and research leading to a dissertation that is defended in a final oral examination.
