Description:The Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies considers the study of Spanish and Italian to be essential components in the acquisition of a liberal arts education. The mission of the Department is to lay a linguistic foundation and promote the knowledge of the literature and cultures of Spanish, Latin American and Italian societies, to which many North Americans have strong historic ties.

Students wishing to obtain a B.A. in Hispanic Studies or Latin American Studies pursue, in addition to language courses, a track of studies in Spanish and Latin American literature and culture. These courses are varied in content and provide the opportunity for intensive study. They range from medieval Spanish literature to the contemporary literatures of Spain and Latin America. Students wishing to enrol in the Honours Program must first obtain the approval of the department Chair. Admission to the Honours Program normally requires a minimum GPA of 7.0 in upper-level Hispanic Studies courses.
