World Languages and Cultures offer a range of programs at different university levels in language, cultural studies, linguistics, literature and teacher education aimed at giving students a sense of world citizenry and preparing them for careers in internationally-related fields.

Our roots are in the humanities and so our ambition is to furnish you with the necessary tools and sensitivity to function in a multicultural world. This means gaining insight into the values of other cultures as well as examining our own individual cultural perspectives.
