- To prepare researchers in Literature.

* As of the Second Semester of 2010, a change in the M.A. Study Plan was approved, as a foundation for the development of the Doctoral Program.
Their general purpose is to analyze and compare some of the main theoretical approaches that guide the reflection concerning the literary phenomenon. Some topics include classical poetics and theories of mimesis; Romantic aesthetic theories; and contemporary tendencies such as: gender studies, hermeneutics, Marxism, poststructuralism, and postcolonial studies.
Elective Monographic or Interdisciplinary Seminars
These literary criticism seminars focus on the study of specific texts, problems, or authors. Theory is used as a tool for the analysis of literary works of different periods and cultures, from a critical and interdisciplinary standpoint.
These are the backbone of the Master's Degree Program, which concludes with the graduation project. The student enrolls in one seminar per semester. It is suggested that research projects should be aligned with the research works of Department professors or groups.
