Note: York University students may earn a Certificate of Proficiency in Spanish Language concurrent with fulfilment of the requirements for a bachelor's degree. The certificate is also open to students who already hold a bachelor's degree from an accredited institution and who are admissible according to Faculty and University policies. This certificate is not, however, open to students who already hold or who are pursuing a degree in Spanish within the Department of Languages, Literatures and Linguistics or within the Department of Hispanic Studies/Études Hispaniques at Glendon College.
