Bienvenidos / Welcome 

Originally established as part of a department of Romance Languages, Hispanic Languages and Literature became an autonomous department in 1970, reflecting the growing impact and intellectual vitality of Hispanic cultures both internationally and within the U.S. Our BA, MA and PhD are designed to serve a broad constituency of students with courses devoted to the language, linguistics, and literary and visual cultures of Spain, Latin America and Latinx communities in the United States. We are located in the Humanities building, office #1055.
