About Us

The Spanish doctoral program in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is ranked nationally as one of the top graduate programs at public research universities, according to the National Research Council. We are a world class group with more than 20 faculty members, over 50 graduate students, and over 350 undergraduate majors. We are diverse in terms of research area and approach (literary/cultural studies, linguistics, Latina/o Studies), as well as national origin and language (Spanish Portuguese, Basque, Catalan, Quechua). Our research is supported by the University Library, one of the world's largest public university collection with over 10 million volumes.

Whether you are a prospective graduate student or among the more than 7000 undergraduates we teach every year, you will find programs that are designed to expand your knowledge and deepen your understanding of the cultures represented in our unit.

We encourage you to browse our web site and contact us if you have any questions.
