Program Overview

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.
