The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures is a multidisciplinary unit that offers students the opportunity to learn languages, develop an understanding of literary and cultural traditions, and pursue studies in the field of Linguistics. A degree focusing on languages, literatures and cultures, or Linguistics provides students with valuable transferable skills that are increasingly important in our global world.
Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures offers a major, medial and minor Plan in Hispanic Studies (formerly Spanish Language and Literature)
Depending on the student's Plan, they will expand their Spanish language skills and/or gain knowledge about critical literary and cultural concepts of the Spanish speaking world.
Taking a major, medial or minor will give students the opportunity to go abroad to a Spanish speaking country and immerse themselves in the language and culture. A few scholarships are available in the Department (one for Spain, and one for Latin America) to help students with the financial side of the exchange.
