Romance Studies

Cultural, economic and political exchanges within and between the regions of the Latin linguistic area called “Romania” were strong, and continued to grow, throughout Antiquity, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, and the modern and contemporary periods.

Today, the linguistic and cultural heritage of ancient “Romania” has become the basis for the multicultural societies of the postcolonial world, not only in Europe but across the globe too: from Quebec to Rio de Janeiro, from Buenos Aires to Polynesia. Today, Romance languages are vehicles of communication and exchange across Europe, North and South America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Africa, and Southeast Asia.

The only program offered in RMST is the Honours program, which includes RMST courses and courses from other FHIS languages. See the RMST Honours description for more information.
