||The Graduate Program in Hispanic Studies offers a dynamic curriculum focusing on a contextualized knowledge of the languages, literatures, and cultures of Latin America, Spain and other Spanish-speaking communities within the US and Canada. The following areas of research are central to the curriculum and intellectual agenda of the program: the current state of literary, cultural and linguistic criticism, visual culture, contemporary debates on the first nations of the Hispanic World, redefinition of minorities in the digital age, and specific issues concerning multilingualism and multiculturalism.
The first M.A. in Spanish was conferred in the early 1950s.
Students have the possibility of holding Teaching Assistantships and Research Assistantships. Our students have access, in addition to all the libraries of UBC, to a Reading Room with a collection of several thousand books, as well as computers. A
Graduate Forum, organized by students in conjunction with faculty members, is held once a month. Every year a symposium is held at which students present their research to the department.
