This experience, combined with the small size of most Hispanic Studies courses, ensures that you will receive a superior education. The faculty is committed to give you as much personal attention as possible in the classroom and in advising sessions.

The Hispanic Studies faculty also is active in professional research and publication. Their interests include subjects as diverse as Chicano art and history, creative writing, gender studies, foreign language methodology, and Latin American, Mexican, and Spanish literature. The faculty has outstanding publication and teaching records.

All are actively involved with professional organizations and regularly make scholarly presentations to local, state, and national associations. Many provide service to national language organizations and to the local community. Faculty members are constantly updating their knowledge of Hispanic culture and civilization. They pursue post-doctoral training and new professional interests through private and government grants. They also frequently travel to Spanish-speaking areas and countries to maintain contact with current social developments in Hispanic cultures.
