From the Department homepage:

“To have another language is to possess a second soul.”

These words, spoken by Charlemagne, King of the Franks, more than 1200 years ago, could not ring truer in today’s interconnected societies.

In the context of UBC’s commitment towards a global citizenship, the Department of French, Hispanic and Italian Studies plays a pivotal role by adding to the curriculum of more than 4,000 undergraduate students the richness of the languages, literatures, films, cultures and civilizations of Canada, France, Africa, the Caribbean, Latin America, Spain, Italy and Portugal. It is also an important centre for research with its faculty members engaging in ground-breaking work and publishing in international venues, and with its 50 graduate students pursuing M.A. and PhD programs in French and in Spanish with a specialization in Literature or Linguistics.

Our research and teaching strengths lie in an in-depth coverage of various fields as well as in an interdisciplinary approach, both within the department (Romance Studies) and with other units and programs: Arts OneCanadian StudiesComparative LiteratureEducation, European StudiesFoundationsHistoryMedieval StudiesLatin American Studies19th Century Studies, and Women’s Studies.

A number of faculty members and graduate students in the Department have research interests that include pre-1800 language, literature, and culture in the Romance-group languages; but whose work is not necessarily exclusively or primarily in the area. The Early Romance is, indeed, one of the Department’s major areas of activity.
