The Master of Arts in Languages, Literatures, and Cultures (MALLC) is designed to enable a wide range of student interests and career goals. The program offers students an in-depth study of the target language(s), literature(s), and culture(s). Students who complete this program find that the additional exposure to the language and culture in literature courses has prepared them for educational or other career opportunities requiring target language fluency, critical-thinking skills, and general familiarity with the target culture in areas such as teaching, international business, and government. The program also prepares students for study at the PhD level in international literary studies or (especially in the case of those who elect the major/minor or double major option) in comparative literature.
This Master's program has three options: a single major (30 credits), a major/minor (36 credits), and a double major (42 credits). All students take at least half their courses in the target language and literature of their major field (French, Italian, or Spanish).
Major Fields: French and Spanish
Minor Fields: French, German, Latin, Italian, Russian and Spanish Literary studies, Women and Gender Studies, Linguistics and FL Pedagogy.
