Faculty of Arts & Science
Department of Slavic Languages & Literatures
From Poland to Russia, and from the Baltic to the Balkans, across thousands of years of shared influences and experiences, the strategically important region in the heart of Europe has given birth to renowned writers, musicians, thinkers and scientists, and evolved unique and profound cultures. U of T's Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures offers undergraduate and graduate students insight into the history, development and recent changes in the literatures, cultures, languages and folklore of a diverse range of Slavic civilizations, including Croatian, Czech, Macedonian, Polish, Russian, Serbian and Ukrainian. The department is also home to Estonian and Finnish studies. An international reputation for excellence in scholarship and an exemplary record in teaching have made U of T an unrivalled leader in Slavic studies. Strong community support will play an important role in fostering an intellectually and culturally enriching academic environment.
