Since its creation in 1968, the Department of Spanish and Portuguese has offered an excellent array of both undergraduate and graduate courses in the areas of Spanish and Portuguese languages, Hispanic and Brazilian literatures, and Linguistics. Our academic programs are diverse, rigorous and comprehensive in their approach and are supported by an outstanding, committed, and internationally recognized faculty who represent the following principal areas of teaching and research: Iberian Middle Ages and Renaissance; Colonial and Modern Latin America; Modern Spain, and Applied Linguistics.

The department offers an uncompromising, and carefully designed curriculum at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. Our general program is an integral part of the education provided by UT’s College of Liberal Arts and seeks to assist students to develop an informed appreciation for Luso-Hispanic languages, literatures and cultures as well as to acquire basic skills in critical thinking, effective writing, and oral communication in Spanish and Portuguese.
