The Department of Romance Languages offers graduate programs in French, Italian, Portuguese, Romance Languages, and Spanish leading to M.A. and Ph.D. degrees. We are one of the most productive departments at the University of Georgia, with a large faculty of professors who specialize in research on literature, culture, linguistics and film.
Our literature programs build on research in traditional areas of literary and cultural studies to examine writing as well as oral, cinematic, spatial, and cybernetic textual forms as they relate to aesthetics, gender and sexuality, race and ethnicity, post-colonialism, diasporas and migration, collective memory, visual culture, the digital humanities and the environment.
