The Graduate Program
The Department of Romance Studies offers programs leading to the degrees of Master of Arts (MA) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in French Language & Literature and in Hispanic Language & Literatures. Although some courses are offered in Italian and linguistics at the graduate level, no graduate degree programs exist in these fields. Comparative perspectives and interest in critical theory are supported by the structure of the department and by its relationship with the Department of Modern Languages & Comparative Literature. Graduate students may combine teaching with study in order to develop a strong grasp of a range of professional skills.
Faculty expertise in Spanish and French covers many areas of literature, contemporary theory, translation, film, and linguistics. Please see our departmental website for further details.
A number of teaching fellowships are offered each year to qualified applicants. Applicants are also eligible for Dean’s Fellowships offered by the Graduate School of Arts & Sciences. Further information is available from the Department of Romance Studies, 718 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215; 617-353-2641; and on our department website.
