Why study Spanish, Hispanic Cultures and Literatures?
Language is the primary medium of human culture and expression. Our programs in Spanish open doors to new ways of understanding the world through the study of language, culture and literature. You will delve into the language of Cervantes, Lorca, Garcia Marquez and Almodóvar and explore one of the world’s most widely spoken languages.
Starting from the four basic language skills — speaking, listening, reading and writing — our programs integrate innovative approaches to the study of Spanish and expose students to a diversity of related aspects such as language, translation, culture and literature.
Honours in Spanish, Hispanic Cultures and Literatures (60 credits)
Specialization in Spanish, Hispanic Cultures and Literatures (60 credits)
Major in Spanish, Hispanic Cultures and Literatures (42 credits)

Honours programs: Students applying directly to an honours program should list it as their first choice. If not admitted to honours, they will automatically be considered for the next highest program (i.e. specialization or major).
Minimum cut-off averages should be used as indicators. The cut-off data may change depending on the applicant pool. Applicants who meet the stated minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to these programs.
We consider complete applications year round and we give priority to applicants who apply by official deadlines. Late applications will be considered if places are still availablefor the fall term only.
