MALS and Hispanic Studies
MALS students pursuing a concentration in Hispanic Studies must take GLS 502, GLS 598, 2 GLS classses of their choice and a total of 18 hours Hispanic Studies distributed as follows: nine hours of core classes in Hispanic Studies and nine hours of electives in Hispanic Studies (as described in the Post-baccalaureate certificate program in the Hispanic Studies section of the UNCW Graduate catalogue).
Students who wish to pursue a post-baccalaureate certificate in Hispanic Studies in addition to pursuing a MALS degree should consult the website for the post-baccalaureate certificate program in Hispanic Studies and, when assigned, the Graduate Coordinator of the Graduate Certificate Program in Hispanic studies.
Assuming they possess the requisite speaking and writing proficiency in Spanish, any MALS student may take any graduate level Hispanic Studies course after obtaining approval from both the course instructor and the GLS Program Director.
Note: For MALS students not pursuing a concentration in Hispanic Studies, only nine non-GLS graduate credit hours will be accepted towards the MALS degree and only six credit hours for cross-listed courses may be used. Also, non-GLS courses cannot be used towards the GLS post-Master's certificate.
