Hispanic Studies

Graduate Program

Our graduate programs balance generalist training with individually tailored specialization and keep a firm commitment to professional development and mentoring.

The Brown Ph.D. in Hispanic Studies emphasizes the global connections and interdisciplinary dialogues of Hispanic literatures and cultures. Students are trained as specialists and generalists, researchers and active intellectuals by an internationally renowned literature faculty with additional strengths in performance, visual, urban, and environmental studies.
The graduate certificate in Hispanic Studies gives students an advanced knowledge of literary, cultural and intellectual movements of the Spanish-speaking world and of the key scholarly debates that animate their study. In addition, students develop competence in academic writing and speaking in the certificate language.
