* M.A. Program Description and Objectives

We are happy to invite applications to our new M.A. Program in Hispanic
Linguistics from all B.A. graduates interested in Spanish linguistics. The
Department offers a Teaching Assistant line to the most outstanding application
(the TAship covers tuition and a stipend for the awarded student during two
consecutive years). There are also other possibilities for financial support for
applicants fitting the relevant criteria. Our MA program lasts four semesters (2
years) and seeks to attract students interested in the study of the different
grammatical aspects of Spanish.

As a program, we are not only interested in the standard varieties of Spanish
but we are particularly interested in the study of its non-standard dialects,
those that emerge, for example, when Spanish as a dominant language enters in
contact with indigenous languages, or when the inverse situation occurs, as in
the context of the United States, where Spanish is in contact with a language
like English, or simply, in a monolingual context as it occurs in many Latino
American countries, where a standard variety of Spanish co-exists with
non-standard dialects.

The department offers courses in Phonetics, Phonology, Syntax, History of the
Spanish Language and Second Language Acquisition. For more detail information
about the program and courses offered go to our web site and contact below:
