Welcome! ¡Bienvenidos! Bem-vindos!

The Department of Spanish and Portuguese offers a full range of undergraduate and graduate courses. While the major emphasis of the Department is literature, we also offer courses in Spanish language, linguistics, and culture, as well as Portuguese language, Brazilian literature and cultural studies. The Department has received the Departmental Award for Exceptional Teaching and Learning from the Center for Teaching Excellence, University of Kansas, and is highly ranked by the NRC. We recognize the integral relationship between teaching and research, and all members of the faculty are both active scholars and dedicated teachers. 


The University Daily Kansan featured an article on the two week global forum recognizing abduction of students in Mexico, including coverage of the solidarity rally with the families and victims of the Ayotzinapa that was held on November 20th.
