    Subject: Graduate support in Linguistics and Spanish


    The Linguistics Program and the Spanish Graduate Program at the University of South Carolina are proud to announce a new cooperative endeavor.

    We have coordinated the Spanish M.A. and the Linguistics Ph.D. degrees in order to provide an integrated program in language, linguistics, and literature, and invite applications for the following two related degree programs:

    (1) an M.A. in Spanish with a concentration in Hispanic Linguistics,

    (2) a Ph.D. in Linguistics with a minor specialization in Hispanic Literature.

    A person completing these two degrees will be well-trained in linguistic theory, Hispanic Linguistics, and Hispanic Literature, and will have teaching experience and familiarity with CALI (computer assisted language instruction). This degree program aims to produce scholars in the area of General Linguistics, Spanish Language and Hispanic Linguistics & Literature, who would fit well in a department of foreign (or Hispanic) Language and Literature.

    Applicants for the M.A. in Spanish should have the equivalent of a major in Spanish. The degree involves four graduate courses in Hispanic Literature, one graduate survey of Linguistics, two courses in Hispanic Linguistics, a comprehensive exam, and a thesis. Students in this program will be supported through teaching assistantships in Spanish. It is anticipated that a student completing this degree will go on to pursue the Ph.D. in Linguistics as outlined below. Individuals interested in applying to the M.A. program in Spanish should contact:

    A. Alejandro Bernal (BERNALAGARNET.CLA.SC.EDU) Department of Spanish, Italian, and Portuguese USC, Columbia, SC 29208

    More information about the Spanish Graduate Program is available at the following URL: www.cla.sc.edu/SIP/index.html

    Applicants for the Ph.D. in Linguistics should hold an M.A. (or the equivalent) in Spanish and/or Linguistics. The degree requirements include seven core courses in linguistic theory (phonology, syntax, etc.), a four course specialization in some subdiscipline of Linguistics (e.g. historical linguistics, second language acquisition, sociolinguistics), and a four course secondary specialization in Hispanic Literature. A student in this program will be supported through a combination of teaching assistantships in Spanish, assistantships in the Foreign Language Learning Center (language lab), adjunct instructorships in Spanish (with the possibility of summer employment), and/or research assistantships. Individuals interested in applying to the Ph.D. program in Linguistics should contact:
