Graduate Studies in Spanish: Overview
Students pursuing their Master of Arts in Spanish with BGSU typically spend their first year abroad in Alcalá de Henares, Spain or in some cases, Xalapa, Mexico, then complete their degree requirements with a second year on campus in Bowling Green, Ohio. In exceptional cases, some students can complete the entire degree on campus. For licensed teachers, we also offer a Master of Arts in Teaching (M.A.T.) that combines courses in Spanish and Education. Part-time students are invited to combine studies on campus with one or two summers in Spain or Mexico on a teacher friendly schedule.
Students who seek to develop broader areas of expertise are invited to apply for our dual MA degree programs currently offered with French, German and History. Dual degrees generally take 3 years to complete and involve 1 year of study abroad for each language. Applicants must meet admissions requirements and be accepted into both programs. Dual degree students receive substantial financial support all 3 years. For additional information, please consult Dual Degrees.
For more information about specific dual degree options, contact the graduate coordinators of the disciplines involved and consult the Graduate Catalog under “Dual Master’s Degree.”
We invite you to contact us about the unique opportunity of living in either Spain or Mexico. Please contact Amy Robinson, Graduate Coordinator, Spanish or Nora Solomon, Coordinator, Education Abroad.
