Welcome to the web page of the department of Spanish and Portuguese! We are a vibrant, multicultural, diverse community of scholars and students deeply engaged in the study of the languages, cultures, societies, literatures and arts of Latin America, the Iberian Peninsula and the growing US Latino population. Today, almost 500 million people speak Spanish worldwide, and over 230 million speak Portuguese. Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world and it has a long tradition in the USA, which along with Mexico, Spain, Colombia, and Argentina is one of the top five Spanish-speaking countries in the world.  

Check out all the amazing things our faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students have done this year!
