Why get a master’s degree in Spanish?
The M.A. program in Spanish lets you pursue a broad range of challenging, advanced studies in linguistics, literature and culture. Students can explore second language acquisition, pedagogy and methodology; Spanish sociolinguistics (language variation and change); and Hispanic literature and cultural studies. The program also supports work in interdisciplinary Hispanic studies. The main goal of the master’s program is to prepare graduates for successful careers or advanced studies at the Ph.D. level through the further development of skills in written and oral communication, intercultural awareness and analysis for students with an undergraduate degree in Spanish or a closely related field.
Why choose UNH for your Spanish degree?
Our faculty are engaged, research-active scholars who work closely with students in small classes. The M.A. in Spanish at UNH offers two options for the program’s concluding experience. For the non-thesis option, students present a seminar paper or project at a local, regional or national conference. The thesis option, designed for those students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in Spanish, involves the preparation of a master's thesis or an equivalent research project directed by a faculty advisor. An accelerated master’s program in Spanish is also available, as is a graduate certificate in Spanish for graduate students in other degree programs.
