"Department of Spanish and Portuguese"

Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! Bem-vindos! Benvinguts!

I am pleased to welcome you to the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at Temple University. One of our most precious experiences concerns our interaction with students. It is our wish that upon graduation they would continue to be productive members of society as they develop distinguished careers. At Spanish and Portuguese, we are engaged in teaching, research, and service in diverse areas. The faculty is greatly interested in a broad array of theoretical, cultural and practical subjects in the fields of Peninsular Literature, Latin American Literature, and Hispanic Linguistics. We offer undergraduate courses towards the completion of the Bachelor of Arts degree in Spanish with the possibility of selecting among several tracks involving Literature, Linguistics, Business and Professional Studies, and Spanish for Education. Moreover, we offer graduate course work leading to the M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Spanish. Click Here for more information about the graduate program.
