BIENVENIDX, and thank you for your interest in the Department of Hispanic Studies. Our website seeks to provide internauts with important information about us, our programs, and activities. But, if you do not find what you are searching for, we welcome your enquiries.

The Department of Hispanic Studies has as its overriding goals the creation and dissemination of knowledge about the Hispanic world. This means we do research, publish, and teach; but among our faculty and student ranks there are also accomplished creative essayists, narrators and poets.

The Department frequently hosts conferences, lectures, and symposia. Nationally and internationally renowned scholars visit often, as well as noted authors and directors.

An undergraduate major (Bachelor of Arts) in Spanish, and/or its combination with another major (double major) can prepare you for a career in fields such as education, translation, communications, diplomacy, health and social services as well as being recognized as a smart preparation for professional school. Our interdisciplinary Ph.D. program allows doctoral students to pursue their interests in Hispanic linguistics, culture, and literature. Former students, both graduate and undergraduate, represent the Department well in many areas of endeavor throughout Texas, the nation and the world.
