Spanish

Bachelor of Arts (BA)

Why choose Spanish?


Spanish scholars ask questions such as: How did Pablo Picasso influence the art world? Did joining the European Union impact Spain’s economy? How did colonization help spread the Spanish language?

Studying Spanish will provide you with a multidisciplinary examination of Spanish language, literature, culture, art and history. This program will allow you to improve your Spanish language skills while developing your awareness and understanding of Hispanic cultures. During the course of your studies, you'll gain creative thinking skills, research and analytical capabilities, intercultural awareness, and the ability to fluently communicate in Spanish.

Career opportunities

​As a graduate of the Spanish program you'll be prepared for career opportunities in areas such as the civil service, the non-profit sector, and the business world. A degree in Spanish can also be used as a stepping-stone to graduate studies or another professional degree such as law, medicine, veterinary medicine, or education.
