Hispanic Studies


In the Hispanic Studies program, you can learn about the literature, intellectual history and civilizations of Spain and Hispanic America, all while developing your language skills in Spanish and Portuguese. With more than 300 million native Spanish speakers living around the world, pursuing a B.A. in Hispanic Studies from McGill opens many career paths and will provide you with a rich cultural education that broadens your perspective.  

Expand your liberal arts background by developing communication and critical reasoning skills, and gain insight into the culture of other regional, linguistic and national groups. 


In an increasingly globalized world, knowing how to speak multiple languages is an incredibly useful skill that can strengthen your career prospects. You may also wish to pursue further study of Hispanic cultures and languages at the graduate level. 

You could become a professional: 

  • Translator 
  • Language teacher 
  • Diplomat  
  • Researcher
