Romance Languages & Literatures

The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures offers graduate degree programs in Spanish and French, as well as an MA emphasis area in foreign language teaching. The department's faculty and graduate student seminars are an interdisciplinary, interdepartmental series seeking to provide a collegial atmosphere in which scholars can present their recent work. The department strongly encourages study abroad as a way to reinforce language skills, broaden one's horizons, and add an unforgettable experience to a meaningful university education.

The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures at the University of Missouri has the country's only focus area in the field of Afro-Romance Studies. In order to facilitate research collaboration between our faculty members working in this field and scholars outside our institution, we have established the Institute for Languages and Literatures of the African Diaspora. The Institute serves first and foremost to expose black writers of French, Portuguese and Spanish expression to a wider audience.
