There are separate reading lists for students of Spanish literature, Portuguese literature, and Hispanic linguistics.

Doctor of Philosophy Degree

Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Hispanic Literature
Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Hispanic Linguistics

Two degrees are offered. The following requirements apply to both. Students are eligible to apply to the Ph.D. programs upon successful completion of an M.A. degree in the intended area of study.

Language/Research-Skill Requirement
Proficiency in multiple languages is an important tool for research. Therefore, students should consult with their advisors and the director of graduate studies before determining which languages they will choose for proficiency. For all plans, students must have reading proficiency in two additional languages (or one in-depth proficiency) besides English and the language of the target program. These may be satisfied in the following ways:

  1. Proficiency in languages taught inside the Department of Spanish and Portuguese:
    1. Spanish: completing with a grade of B (3.0) or better, S105, or the equivalent, and one course at the 500 level or higher (excluding S517);
    2. Portuguese: completing, with a grade of B (3.0) or better, P135, or the equivalent, and one course at the 500 level or higher;
    3. Catalan: completing, with a grade of B (3.0) or better, two courses at the 400 level or higher;
    4. In-depth language proficiency: The student must first establish proficiency in the language by one of the methods listed above (a-c). Then the student must pass, with a grade of B or better, another course at the 500 level or higher;
  2. Proficiency for languages not taught in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese: The Department of Spanish and Portuguese accepts language proficiency by any of the following methods, provided that these also fulfill the target language department's proficiency requirements:
    1. passing a language proficiency examination;
    2. passing a 300-level course with a grade of B (3.0) or better;
    3. passing the second half of a 400-level reading course (492) with a grade of B (3.0) or better;
    4. in-depth language proficiency: The student must first establish proficiency in the language by one of the methods listed above (a-c). Then the student must pass, with a grade of B (3.0) or better, another course at the 500 level or higher. The course must be taught in the target language. Ph.D. students in linguistics may replace reading proficiency in one foreign language with two 500-level courses in statistics or two courses, chosen in consultation with the director of Hispanic linguistics, in computer science. Neither English nor the language of the degree program may be presented as one of the foreign languages.

Qualifying Examination
See individual program outlines for qualifying exam requirements.

Final Examination
Oral, primarily a defense of the dissertation.

Other Provisions
Competence in speaking Spanish or Portuguese fluently and with correct diction is expected of every student; hence, foreign residence in a Spanish- or Portuguese-speaking country prior to receiving the Ph.D. is highly desirable.

Students must serve one year (longer at discretion of the department) as associate instructors in the department. Students who have taught elsewhere may petition the faculty to have that experience accepted as fulfilling this requirement.

(These distribution requirements fulfill the Ph.D. minor of at least 12 credit hours in another department.) Thesis work consists of 15 credit hours.

Qualifying Examination
Students will take examinations in each of the three areas of concentration. The examining committee will determine whether the format is to be sit-down or take-home. If the exams are sit-down, they will last nine hours, six hours, and three hours, respectively. The nine-hour exam will cover the student's principal area as reflected by the dissertation topic. The six-hour exam will cover the second concentration. The three-hour exam will cover the third concentration, consisting of nine credit hours.
