Our Portuguese Language Program was developed because Portuguese is spoken by approximately 200 million people across the globe. The required courses teach you the Portuguese language while also introducing you to the cultures in which it is spoken.
There are no prerequisites if you choose to start this program with our introductory LANG 9045 Portuguese 1 course. However, if you have previous Portuguese language experience and wish to fast-track this program, you must either do a placement interview (so we can determine your Portuguese language proficiency and the course most suitable for you to start with) or apply for course exemptions (if you have completed the equivalent courses at an accredited post-secondary institution within the last three to five years).
You must complete our LANG 9082 Portuguese 4 course and our LANG 9083 Portuguese 5 course regardless of your placement interview or exemption results. Once you have completed all the requirements of this program with a cumulative grade average of B (73%) or better, you can request to receive a certificate of completion.
