Description:The Department of Languages, Literatures, and Cultures - Hispanic Studies offers courses on literature, intellectual history and the civilizations of Spain and Hispanic America, as well as in the Spanish and Portuguese languages. The Department and its Honours, Majors, and Minors programs are committed to expanding the liberal arts background of students by helping to develop the skills of communication and critical reasoning, and by providing insight into the culture of other regional, linguistic and national groups.

With more than 300 million native speakers of Spanish around the World, covering more than 18 countries, a B.A. in Hispanic Studies opens many doors towards successful paths not only in Graduate School but also in a highly competitive job market. In general, the students who complete a B.A. in Hispanic Studies (Major/Honours) pursue a second major in departments such as Art History, Psychology, History, International Development Studies, Quebec Studies, and Political Sciences. After graduation, many of them continue their studies in graduate school in Spanish or Latin American Studies, or related disciplines such as History, Comparative Literature, or Anthropology, where the knowledge of Spanish language, literature, and culture is a highly valuable skill.
