Since 1963 and the establishment of the Centre d’études canadiennes-françaises, McGill has made a significant contribution to Quebec Studies. In 1985, the Centre became a Program (1985), and then in 1993 was transformed into the Quebec Studies Program (QSP) as it exists today.
The Quebec Studies Program is an undergraduate program in the Faculty of Arts that fosters interdisciplinary studies on Quebec history, culture and society.
With support from individual departments, both Minor and Major Concentrations are offered. These programmes consist of a coherent series of courses that provide an interdisciplinary perspective on Quebec society in both Canadian and international contexts.
Should their main field of study be Quebec, graduate students must apply to the department of their primary discipline. Graduate students taking courses dealing in whole or in part with Quebec, or who are studying Quebec as their special field of study, are welcome to make use of the facilities of the Quebec Studies Programme.
