The Languages and Linguistics department strives to foster a deep understanding and appreciation of human language forms and functions. We commit to providing our students with the skills and knowledge they need to use language(s) to communicate effectively, think critically, and be and participate as linguistically and culturally informed global citizens.
Our faculty comes with a wide range of linguistic and cultural knowledge and backgrounds.
