SLU-Madrid's Spanish Department offers courses in Spanish at all levels, from intensive introductory courses to those that fulfill requirements for graduate degrees.
The Bachelor of Arts in Spanish focuses on advanced language training, culture and literary studies. We also offer a minor in Spanish. Because of the need to compete successfully in our increasingly global environment, a double major (or a minor) in Spanish and another area of study is a popular choice for students considering careers in law, science, political science, international business, economics, history, or education.
SLU-Madrid's Master of Arts in Spanish offers you a holistic approach to the study of Spanish language, culture, and literature. At the same time, its diverse curriculum includes offerings in Peninsular and Latin American literature, Afro-Hispanic literature, film, art, women writers, testimony, linguistics, applied linguistics, and teaching methodologies. Such a curriculum makes it possible for you to gain a solid, up-to-date background in Spanish studies as well as to broaden your perspective within specific areas of interest.
The program is suited to those planning or already engaged in professional careers such as teaching or international affairs. It also has a record of providing excellent preparation for if you choose to continue your studies beyond the M.A. degree.
