Spanish: Master of Arts (MA)
The Department of Hispanic Languages and Literatures is committed to serving the large, culturally diverse community of Queens and surrounding areas by promoting critical thinking and disseminating knowledge of the Hispanic cultural and literary heritage.

Diversity in Queens refers to ethnic, cultural, and geographical origins. The department recognizes the varied academic traditions that such diversity implies. Our focus, therefore, is on building a foundation to bridge the students’ cultural differences, in order to ensure their continued academic and career development.

With these goals in mind, the department has established a Master of Arts program and a Master of Science in Secondary Education program that serve a large group of students who are educators, as well as a number of students who will continue their graduate studies at the doctoral level. More specifically, the Master of Arts degree in Spanish leads to teaching careers in secondary education and college, and to admission to doctoral programs in Spanish or comparative literature. Courses cover numerous aspects of Spanish and Latin American literature viewed through various methods of literary criticism.
