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.
- Students should apply to the Humanities admission category on the St. George campus
- Six grade 12 U or M courses, including English are required
- Students outside of Ontario should have the equivalent senior high school credits
- Hungarian Studies (major and minor options)
- HUN 100Y - Introduction to Hungarian Language
Advice for First-Year
Students should consider an introductory History course such as HIS103Y1 - Statecraft and Strategy or HIS109Y1 - The Development of European Civilization 1350 - 1945. First year students can also consider the U of T's Central Europe Summer Abroad program in Brno, Czech Republic which has two courses that devote considerable attention to the Hungarians and Hungary, both past and present.
