Alumni of the M.A. in Romance Languages: Spanish Emphasis teach Spanish language and Hispanic culture in K-12 schools throughout the Kansas City metropolitan area and around the country. Other FLL graduates have gone on to earn doctorates in Spanish  and Latin American literature and are employed at colleges and universities around the nation. Some former Masters students use their Spanish skills in any number of fields from translation to social services to medicine to law.

Students take 30-graduate credits (of which up to nine units can be 400-level undergraduate credits) and an oral and written Masters exam. They enjoy individualized advising throughout the entire program and some students may qualify to teach language courses while enrolled in the program.
