University of Toronto

Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures

Estonian Studies at the University of Toronto are concerned with the language, literature, and culture of Estonia. Comprehension of Baltic cultures requires knowledge of culture contacts between Baltic and Finno-Ugric language groups, and the historical dynamics of shaping forces from both Slavic and Germanic directions. Complementing course offerings in Baltic History, interdisciplinary Estonian and Baltic literature, civilization, and folklore courses taught in English represent further opportunities to contextualize Estonian Studies on the regional and European map. The teaching of Estonian language and culture is one of the stated goals of the Chair of Estonian Studies, and thus a part of its original curricular design.
Degrees offered: undergraduate major in European Studies-Estonian concentration
