UC, Berkeley - Graduate Applications for Fall 2022

The Graduate Program in Romance Languages and Literatures
at University of California, Berkeley is accepting applications for Fall 2022.
This interdisciplinary program run by the Departments of French, Italian Studies, and Spanish & Portuguese offers students a unique opportunity to work with distinguished faculty in all three departments, as they take advantage of Berkeley's unmatched resources for comparative study of the literatures and linguistics of the Romance language family.  

Each student chooses a track of study within RLL:   
In the Literature track, students will gain a detailed knowledge of the literature of their Primary language. They will also develop a familiarity with two other Romance literatures sufficient to allow them to do the focused comparative work necessary for the preparation of the Qualifying Examination. Moreover, students will develop both historical and practical expertise in Latin as well as in the three chosen Romance languages.
In the Linguistics track, students will gain in-depth knowledge of the structure and history (internal and external) of their primary language. They will also develop expertise in the linguistics of two other Romance languages and specialize in an area of general or applied linguistics. This, together with some training in Latin, will prepare them for the comparative Romance linguistic work that is required for the Qualifying Examination.
There is considerable flexibility when it comes to choosing a dissertation topic in the RLL program. Recent graduates have written on subjects as diverse as medieval French syntax, Renaissance translation, and letters in French and Spanish from colonial Louisiana.
Financial support for accepted applicants is available.
We welcome applications from interested and highly qualified students. 
The deadline for admissions and fellowship is Wednesday, December 15, 2021, 8:59 PST.
You will find a wealth of information about the program on our website; please feel free to contact us with any further questions you may have.
