The graduate program in Hispanic Studies offers opportunities for advanced study in the literatures of Spain and Spanish America, leading to the Ph.D and to the M.A. (with or without thesis).
The UBC Library has extensive holdings in all areas of Hispanic studies, with particularly strong holdings in periodicals and Latin-American studies, in both Spanish and Portuguese. The Department has a reading room for graduate students, containing basic texts, scholarly collections, and reference works.
The program makes available a list of courses to be offered as early as possible, usually in February of the preceding academic year.
The M.A. program provides for two options. The minimum credit requirement for either option is 30.
M.A. without Thesis 1. 27 credits of course work in SPAN numbered above 500, up to 6 of which may be drawn from 400-level undergraduate courses in Spanish. 2. Spanish 548 (3), a Graduating Essay written in Spanish. The length of the graduating essay should be approximately 40 pages, including the bibliography. It may be based on a paper submitted for a graduate course, but thoroughly revised and expanded. 3. A one-hour oral examination, normally conducted in the target language, based on the graduating essay and the student’s overall graduate program. 4. Regular attendance in the Hispanic Studies Research Seminar is mandatory and active participation and debate are expected.
