Hungarian Studies

Hungarian studies at the University of Toronto focus on the history, language, literature, and culture of Hungary and on the international role of Hungary and Hungarians – particularly on Hungarian immigration to Canada. For many of the courses no prior knowledge of the Hungarian language is necessary, making them easily accessible also to students in other programs.
