Join us at Laurier

Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

Apply Spanish to Practical Projects

Studying Spanish at Laurier offers you the opportunity to experience the latest methods in language learning while applying your knowledge through creative projects and new technologies, such as:

  • eportfolios (SP335)
  • photo essays (SP438)
  • digital stories (SP100)
  • magazines (SP451)

Study Abroad and Hone Your Spanish Skills

After completing your first year, you’ll be able to study abroad in Spain with a Laurier faculty member during the summer for SP288, a 1.0-credit course.

Nothing compares to experiencing the Spanish language and culture in its own setting! While developing your language skills, you’ll also become more aware of cultural nuances and the uniqueness of textual and artistic representations.

Study Spanish for Business

Did you know that the Spanish program at Laurier is the sole Canadian representative of the Madrid Chamber of Commerce and Industry (MCCI)? You can get the official certificate for Basic Business Spanish by taking our Spanish for Business courses and writing the MCCI exam here at Laurier! Our students have had a 97% success rate in the exam for more than 18 years.

"I couldn't have asked for a better program or department to spend my time in during my four years at Laurier. [...] The professors in the department make an already exciting experience even better because of their passion for the topics and their students."

– Amanda Stavropoulos (BA '13)
