Cooperative PhD Program
The Department of Hispanic Studies at the University of Houston and the Department of Modern Languages and Literature at the University of Texas Pan American are pleased to announce a unique collaboration that allows students to study the language, literature, and culture of the border on the border. Through videoconferencing technologies, interaction with the graduate faculty of the University of Texas Pan American, and short term summer residencies on the University of Houston campus, students now have the opportunity to pursue doctoral level studies in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. By combining faculty strengths in U.S. Latina/o literature, Spanish sociolinguistics, and Latin American and Peninsular literature, this cooperative program opens the cultural and linguistic resources of the South Texas border region to critical inquiry and theorization.
