The University of Arizona, in addition to a Master’s Program, now offers a
Ph.D. degree in Hispanic Linguistics.

Our Ph.D. program offers unique characteristics and opportunities:
- Faculty representing a diversity of areas in Hispanic linguistics, including
bilingualism, biological origins of language, heritage language pedagogy,
phonetics, phonology, sociolinguistics, syntax, and translation studies.

- Students have access to laboratory facilities (such as the Applied Phonetics
and Psycholinguistics Lab), both in the Department of Spanish and Portuguese
and in others.

- An ideal location for field work –Tucson is one of the oldest Hispanic
communities in the Southwest and situated just miles from the border with
Mexico--providing the students with the unique opportunity to carry out field
research among the local bilingual population. 

- Involvement with two journals (Arizona Journal of Hispanic Cultural Studies
and Divergencias, a student run e-journal), the organization of the annual
Graduate Student Symposium and the monthly Department of Spanish and
Portuguese Linguistics Colloquium (DSPLC), and the assistance for faculty run
conferences such as the 39 Linguistics Symposium on Romance Language (2009),
the 6th International Workshop on Spanish Sociolinguistics (2012), and the
forthcoming Laboratory Approaches to Romance Phonology.

- In addition to Hispanic Linguistics, the University of Arizona hosts some of
the most prestigious programs in the country in Linguistics, Linguistic
Anthropology, and Second Language Acquisition and Teaching (SLAT), allowing
for a vibrant intellectual community of linguists. 

Funding opportunities include:
- Graduate Assistantships in Teaching, including the opportunity for advanced
graduate candidates to teach introductory linguistics courses and other
advanced courses for majors.

- Funding for conferences and field research grants due to the University´s
connection to Title VI Resource Centers in Latin American Studies and applied
linguistics (CERCLL).

- Funded positions as assistants to the director on our study abroad programs
in Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Mexico and Spain.

- Research Assistant positions that allow students to contribute to the
research projects of faculty members.

For more information, please contact Isela Gonzales, Graduate Administrative
Associate, 
at 520-621-3125 or iselag at email.arizona.edu.

All in all, our department has a great deal to offer and would welcome your
recommendation for prospective students. If you are interested in learning
more about our program, we would like to invite you and your student to visit
