Program Overview

Spanish is becoming more and more the second language of choice for people around the world. In order to better meet the growing demand and give students an opportunity to work towards proficiency in Spanish, Humber offers three six-course certificate programs: Spanish Language certificate (in-class), Everyday Spanish Language certificate (online) and Professional Spanish Language certificate (online).

If you are looking to earn one of the Spanish language certificates, you can begin your studies at your appropriate level rather than having to start at the beginner level. However, you must complete at least levels 5 and 6 to receive any of the Spanish language certificates.
