Graduate Studies in Spanish

At Middlebury, studying a language means more than the pursuit of linguistic fluency. Middlebury's Language Pledge, the agreement to speak only Spanish during your time in the program, helps to create a unique immersion environment designed to support independent exploration, maximize language acquisition, and foster the cultural understanding you need to thrive in the classroom and in the Spanish-speaking world.

Our graduate students approach their studies with intention—building language skills and cultural awareness in preparation for a future in business, government, academia, public health, and dozens of other fields. The program offers the flexibility you need to earn a graduate degree in Spanish while pursuing your career goals--whatever those goals might be. 

All graduate students must successfully complete an initial 6-week graduate summer session on either the Vermont or California campus before establishing their candidacy for the MA degree. The MA degree requires successful completion of 12 course units. Middlebury awards one unit of graduate credit (equivalent to three semester hours) for each graduate course. The normal course load is 3 course units per summer.
