Our faculty offer courses in Spanish, Spanish American, and Chicano literature and culture; in Portuguese and Luso-Brazilian literature and culture; and in Hispanic linguistics, while also providing language courses in Spanish and in Portuguese from the introductory to advanced levels. We have a new and already nationally prominent area in Spanish creative writing. Students (including non-majors) can participate in one of many study-abroad opportunities in Spain and Latin America.

We have strong ties to the Foreign Language Acquisition, Research, and Education program and its PhD in Second Language Acquisition; to the Departments of Cinema and Comparative Literature and its undergraduate and graduate programs; to the undergraduate and graduate programs in the Department of Linguistics; to the Latin American Studies Program; and to departments that offer courses in the history, anthropology, and politics of the Iberian peninsula, Latin America, and the borderlands.
