Our MA degree programs in Comparative Literature, French, Linguistics, and Spanish prepare students for careers in myriad professions, teaching at the high school and community college level, and for doctoral work in discipline-specific areas, as well as for broader-based Comparative Studies and Cultural Studies PhD degrees. In addition, our faculty members are proud to participate in certificate programs in ESL, Jewish Studies, Classical Studies, Women's Studies, and Caribbean and Latin American Studies as well as the interdisciplinary PhD program in Comparative Studies. The department is home to the journal FACS (Florida Atlantic Comparative Studies), and a new journal in Linguistics Boca: The South Florida Journal of Linguistics.
We take pride in the quality and caliber of our faculty whose academic profiles have earned the department multiple research and teaching awards. We are equally impressed by the accomplishments of our students who are our inspiration. Be sure to check out both our faculty and alumni profiles to get a flavor of what we have to offer and how our students are using their degrees after graduation.
It would be our pleasure to welcome you to our dynamic department; we invite you to explore our different programs and to stop by either in person or in cyberspace.
