Language degrees have traditionally focused on teacher or translator training. We feel that there is a need for a degree that goes beyond that. That’s why we have created a completely new BA degree called APPLIED LINGUISTICS AND INTERCULTURAL COMMUNICATION. We have created a curriculum that will help you learn not the only language itself, but most importantly – how to use languages in a variety of contexts. We focus on practical language use in a multicultural and multilingual world.
