About Hispanic Studies

About Hispanic Studies

The Department of Hispanic Studies offers courses on literature, intellectual history and the civilization of Spain and Hispanic America, as well as in the Spanish and Portuguese languages. The Department and its 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.

McGill University has bilateral exchange agreements with the Universidad de Salamanca (Spain), the Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México, and the Universidad de las Américas, Puebla (Mexico), as well as with other leading universities in the Spanish and Portuguese-speaking world which allow student and faculty exchanges, and other collaborative ventures. Further information about these exchanges may be obtained from the Department. Application forms are available from the Student Exchange Officer in Enrolment Services, James Administration Building. (Note that this office will be moving in Summer 2010. See http://www.mcgill.ca/students for details.)

The Department collaborates closely with the Program in Latin-American and Caribbean Studies, and students are encouraged to consult that program listing.

The Department of Hispanic Studies offers the following undergraduate programs and concentrations, which permit students to pursue a variety of intellectual and preprofessional options:

  • Minor Concentration in Hispanic Languages (Expandable)
  • Minor Concentration in Hispanic Literature and Culture (Expandable)
  • Major Concentration in Hispanic Languages
  • Major Concentration in Hispanic Literature and Culture
  • Honours Program in Hispanic Studies
  • Joint Honours Program in Hispanic Studies

Students who envision graduate studies upon completion of the B.A. are strongly advised to pursue a program of Honours or Joint Honours. (Honours students must submit their thesis by March 15.) Although the Major and Minor Concentrations form an important part of the multi-track B.A. in Arts, this general degree does not provide the specialized training called for by most graduate programs in the Humanities and Social Sciences.

Note: Advanced Placement (AP) credits and courses taken at other universities in Quebec will not be accredited towards the Minor.
