Slideshow Banners

The School of Languages and Literatures offers all interested students unique access to other ways of thinking by introducing them to languages, literatures, and cultures different from their own. With course content from the Ancient World to the contemporary context, we provide our students with a broad education which encompasses the arts without neglecting the practical. Cultural awareness and linguistic accuracy prepare students for successful participation in the global community.

Faculty members are dynamic and innovative educators and researchers in their disciplines. We have received research funding from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, and other Canadian funding agencies such as MITACS, as well from as foreign governments. We have also been honoured with various teaching awards, including the prestigious 3M Teaching Fellowship. We are proud to promote and incorporate the learning objectives of the University of Guelph into our courses, particularly internationalism, literacy, independence of thought, a sense of historical development and love of learning.

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
