By integrating second-language acquisition with a culture-based communicative approach, the faculty of the Department of Languages and Cultures is committed to providing students with academically rigorous, life enriching experiences that advance knowledge in a spirit of discovery through theory-based cultural exploration and analysis. These goals contribute and reflect the campus´ mission and goals regarding diversity, global outreach, awareness and understanding. The objective of the Department is to provide students with the linguistic and intellectual bases and structures necessary for critically assessing and living in the pluridisciplinary, multicultural and global environment of the modern world.
We aim at providing students with an excellent education in an environment that stimulates their intellect and awakens their interest in the human spirit. At the core of our mission is facilitating the tools that will allow our students to grow into aware, fulfilled members of our global society.
