About

The French and Spanish MA program from University of Lethbridge offers students in a wide range of disciplines the opportunity to earn a master’s degree by writing a thesis and successfully completing a limited number of courses. 

Overview

Study French and Spanish at University of Lethbridge

The Spanish-speaking demographic has grown rapidly in Alberta, but so has business between Canadian companies and Latin America, which has led to a demand for employees who can do business with Spanish speaking clients both here and abroad. This includes fields like media, banking, government service, foreign affairs, non-government organizations, research, ESL teaching and many others. More broadly, companies in our global economic environment are increasingly looking for employees with a second or third language, and who have backgrounds that allow them to interact effectively with other cultures.  

Because of the nature of the French and Spanish MA program offered by University of Lethbridge, the Thesis forms the central requirement of the program. At the master’s level, a Thesis involves close collaboration between supervisor and student. Consequently, students are required to secure a potential supervisor prior to submitting an application for this program (except for Economics major).​ 

Programme Structure

  • Graduate degrees traditionally have been awarded for the successful completion of a satisfactory Thesis. 
  • The Thesis route expresses the fundamental tradition of academic scholarship. 
  • It also relates to the University’s undergraduate programs, because the creation of a Thesis in any discipline calls for a range of skills which are central to the liberal education tradition, including analysis and synthesis of ideas, empirical investigations, the construction and articulation of arguments, and writing skills.
