What will I learn?

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese Languages and Literatures boasts one of the most prestigious and innovative programs in the country. Students with an interest in the Spanish and Portuguese languages and/or the cultural production of Latin America, the Caribbean, and Spain take a wide range of courses with a world-class faculty, who frequently collaborate with NYU's Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, the King Juan Carlos I Center, and the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics.

The department offers six majors (Spanish and Latin American literature and culture; Latin American and Caribbean studies; Iberian studies; Romance languages; Spanish and linguistics; and Luso-Brazilian language and literature), as well as minors in Spanish, Latin American and Caribbean studies, Iberian studies, creative writing in Spanish, and Luso-Brazilian language and literature. Highly qualified students may participate in the honors program, which culminates in the writing of a thesis during the student's senior year under the supervision of a faculty member. Internships are offered for credit with educational and cultural institutions throughout the city. Students are encouraged to study away at NYU Madrid and NYU Buenos Aires, where they may fulfill many major or minor requirements through site-specific classes and immersive experiences.
