Portuguese Language Certificate

Humber College Logo(2)


With the current changes in our global economy, Portuguese is becoming more and more important for business in the Greater Toronto Area. In order to better meet the growing demand and give students an opportunity to achieve proficiency in Brazilian and European Portuguese, Humber offers a six-course certificate program. Although the scope of the program is general in nature, students can apply their language skills to various areas such as business travel, general interest and employment options.
Students looking to earn the Portuguese Language Certificate begin their studies at their appropriate level rather than having to start at the beginner level. Occasionally, Humber’s upper-level Portuguese courses may not be offered due to enrolment fluctuations. In such cases, students can complete their upper-level Portuguese courses through the School of Continuing Studies, University of Toronto, in collaboration with Instituto Camões, and still qualify for the Humber Portuguese Language Certificate provided that they have completed a minimum of two Portuguese courses at Humber.

Refer to the individual course listings for information on the following courses.
