The Department of Romance Languages offers graduate courses taught in French, Italian, Portuguese and Spanish leading to M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. The majority of students hold teaching assistantships and receive full tuition remission and a stipend. We are one of the most productive departments at the University of Georgia, with a faculty of professors who specialize in research on linguistics, literature, and culture: areas of specialization.
