About the Portuguese Program

The M.A. program in Portuguese is based on a series of core courses designed to give the student a broad knowledge of Portuguese, Brazilian and Lusophone African literary currents. In the Ph.D. program the student selects a major and two supporting fields. The program of studies leading toward the PhD provides multiple opportunities for the development of analytical skills, and integrated with those skills an extensive knowledge of theoretical issues. Doctoral work culminates in a dissertation.
