The 30-hour Master of Arts degree is available to students who wish to engage in a more traditional program of literary and language studies: This degree entails 24 hours in Spanish, including the thesis, 6 to 12 hours in a supporting area, and a minimum reading knowledge of a second foreign language. Students may choose among minors in the humanities, social sciences, or other disciplines, or they may develop special emphases in literary periods or areas such as Chicano/Chicana literature, critical theory, humanities, linguistics, or women's studies. M.A. students take a comprehensive exam with written and oral components prior to graduation.
