Portuguese is the sixth most widely used language in the world. It is spoken by more than two hundred and sixty million people on four continents inhabited by the Lusophone population: Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Americas. Twenty percent of all residents of the Western Hemisphere are Brazilians, a fact attesting to the truth that one out of every five Americans - North, Central, South - speaks Portuguese as his or her native language. The literature of Portugal has a tradition that goes back as far as the twelfth century, and the discoveries of its Renaissance seafarers led the language and the culture to all corners of the globe. The Department offers an integrated curriculum, combining courses in language, linguistics, literature, and culture. Courses in the studies of the Lusophone world provide a diverse, flexible and detailed examination of the Portuguese language and its cultures. The skills and knowledge developed in these courses lay the groundwork for careers in teaching, journalism, translation, publishing, and foreign services, as well as for research in a variety of fields. In the Canadian job market, command of the Portuguese language is a definite advantage. Toronto has one of the largest Portuguese speaking diasporas, and Canada has been establishing strong cultural, political and business ties with Brazil.
