RCS Spanish Section Pauses Graduate Admission for Academic Year 2021-2022

COVID-19 Admissions Alert

In response to the disruptions caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic and out of special concern for our currently enrolled graduate students, the Spanish faculty has decided to pause admissions to all three of the Spanish graduate programs offered by the Department of Romance & Classical Studies at Michigan State University, including the PhD in Hispanic Cultural Studies, the MA in Hispanic Literatures and the MA in Spanish as a Second or Bilingual Language. This one-year pause will enable us to devote our attention to supporting our current students. Graduate training and research are central to the mission of our department and we expect to re-open admissions for the 2022-23 academic year beginning next September. While we do not pause admissions lightly, in these uncertain times we are committed to extending additional resources to foster our current students’ success and wellbeing. Please contact grad@rcs.msu.edu if you have any questions between now and next September.
