Program Description:

Bring your proficiency in French, Spanish, or Italian to new heights through Binghamton’s Department of Romance Languages and Literatures. In addition to our excellent faculty who instruct for each language, we work closely with other disciplines within the university to provide students individualized courses of study. You are encouraged to immerse yourself in the history, art, and rich literary legacy of your chosen language. The M.A. degree will help you on your way to further studies in literature and language, should you decide to continue further graduate work. Meanwhile, proficiency in a second language is valuable in many industries, as well as work in education and communications. The Master of Arts in Teaching degree is available for students interested in certification to teach Spanish or French up to a high school level. If you wish to pursue your Ph.D. as well as your M.A., consider Binghamton’s joint M.A. in French, Spanish or Italian + Ph.D. in Comparative Literature. This program melds traditional foreign language and literature studies with current developments in contemporary literary theory. We invite you to learn more about our various programs on the Binghamton University Graduate School website.
