Quebec Studies Program

Quebec Studies


Since 1963 and the establishment of the Centre d’études canadiennes-françaises, McGill has made a significant contribution to Quebec Studies. In 1985, the Centre became a Program (1985), and then in 1993 was transformed into the Quebec Studies Program (QSP) as it exists today.

The Quebec Studies Program is an undergraduate program in the Faculty of Arts that fosters interdisciplinary studies on Quebec history, culture and society.

With support from individual departments, a Minor Concentration is offered. This programme consist of a coherent series of courses that provide an interdisciplinary perspective on Quebec society in both Canadian and international contexts.

Should their main field of study be Quebec, graduate students must apply to the department of their primary discipline. Graduate students taking courses dealing in whole or in part with Quebec, or who are studying Quebec as their special field of study, are welcome to make use of the facilities of the Quebec Studies Programme.


On Tuesdays or Thursdays from 12h to 1 pm, meet different Montrealers during a lunch discussion period. A great occasion to learn more about Montreal ! Please see list of guests here. Organized in collaboration with the Quebec Studies Student Association.

The Quebec Studies Program aims to enhance McGill students' academic experience by giving them the opportunity to immerse themselves in Quebec's language, history and culture.
