Languages, Literatures, and Clutures (MA)

Mission

Through engaged teaching, innovative research, diverse creative activity, and dedicated service, the Department strives to:

  • Communicate an understanding of languages, literatures, and cultures within the context of a humanistic liberal education;
  • Connect with individuals and communities within the department, across the campus, the state, the nation, and the world in order to foster a culture of meaningful intellectual inquiry, participatory and life-long learning that promotes respect for all;
  • Contribute to the University’s strategic goal of internationalizing the campus as we prepare our students to excel in a variety of professions and graduate studies.
The Department offers the Master of Arts in Languages, Literatures and Cultures with concentrations in French and Francophone Studies and Spanish to further the study of Spanish regionally, nationally, and internationally. The program is balanced and comprehensive to afford students advanced opportunities to pursue an interest in language skills, literature, linguistics, culture, and teaching methodology, if desired. These objectives contribute to the university's mission "linking the Triad and North Carolina to the world through learning, discovery, and service," as well as the UNC Tomorrow initiative.
