With the endeavor of enhancing the undergraduate academic experience of U of T Mississauga students, the Department of Language Studies offers a variety of undergraduate level language courses that can be taken as electives. These language courses offer the opportunity to expand students' professional skills, and to better prepare them for graduate study as well as a competitive global market.

Students can request a notation on their academic record of language proficiency. The Language Citation at the University of Toronto Mississauga is official recognition on a student's transcript that the student has progressed to an advanced level in the study of a language, and has been assessed as achieving "good" results in that study. For further information see Experiential and International Opportunities or visit the Department of Language Studies website at

All students who are enrolling in an ARA, CHI, HIN, PUN, SPA, and URD course for the first time are required to complete a language assessment questionnaire. Students who have not completed an assessment cannot be approved for course enrolment. Please visit the department website for further details.
