Welcome Bienvenidos and Welcome! We encourage you to explore this website, and better yet, to come visit us when you can. The Department of Spanish, Portuguese, and Latin American Studies is dedicated to the research and teaching of the literature, cultures and languages of the Spanish and Portuguese speaking worlds. We offer a full range of undergraduate courses in two majors: Spanish and Portuguese, and Latin American Studies. Our faculty are researchers and teachers with world-wide recognition and work directly with students to achieve their academic goals. In addition, the Spanish Resource Center calls our department home with a collection of Spanish literature, film, and music that is available to the Rice community. The SRC sponsors K-12 outreach programs on language instruction throughout the Houston area and co-sponsors cultural and academic events in partnership with us. Please note that we will regularly post events that you might find interesting. These events are always open to the public, so make us one of your bookmarks.
