Graduate Courses - Fall 2020

SPA 770: Introduction to Hispanic Studies

Dr. Moisés R. Castillo 

This three-credit course is designed to give new and continuing M.A. and Ph.D. students an overview of and introduction to graduate studies and to the profession of Hispanism. The classes will consist of a series of presentations, discussions and critiques of sample materials as well as guest visits from other faculty from the Department of Hispanic Studies, HIGSA, and staff from Young Library. Sessions will deal with the demands and expectations of graduate study and major issues confronting higher education in this country. The course will introduce students to the types of activities they will undertake as researchers and will familiarize them with current research methods, trends and opportunities. We will examine how to undertake research, how to document that research properly and how to present it in the form of an abstract, a written paper, a review, an annotated bibliography, and a grant application. We will also work on how to organize and write a CV, when and how to present a paper at a conference, a guest speaker, and ways of presenting professional findings in the format of a round table discussion in front of a group of colleagues.

All materials for this course will be uploaded in canvas
