Spanish — Redefine the Possible

Spanish is an ideal match with any Program. As a specialization, as part of a double major, or as a minor, Spanish will enhance your York University education and future career prospects. Although it is a natural match with Programs like Communication and Media Studies, Geography and Urban Studies, Environmental Studies, Political Science, Business, Disaster and Emergency Management, Sociology, Anthropology, Education, Library Sciences, History, Humanities, Music, English and other World Languages, Spanish may also inform Programs in other fields such as Kinesiology, Biology, Law and Engineering. The Certificate of Proficiency in Spanish language can be added to any BA program. Also, explore the benefits of integrating Spanish language studies while pursuing an iBBA.

What can Spanish do for my career?

Our Program is an ideal foundation for work in many different areas. Qualified bilingual graduates are in demand in fields such as national and international law, business and finance, the media, social services, medicine, education and hospitality. The ability to read and speak Spanish allows you to communicate in one of the major international languages. With the NAFTA agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico, Spanish has become even more essential in the world of international commerce.
