Foreign Language Program

Foreign Language and Culture Concentration

A Citizen of a Global Community

The Foreign Language and Culture Concentration promotes multilingualism, interactivity, and cross-cultural skills.

The Foreign Language and Culture Concentration allows students to understand how language, culture, and interpersonal skills contribute to successful intercultural communication.

The FLC students will specialize in one modern language while studying a second foreign language to benefit from increased linguistic and cultural competences.

Students will not only develop communicative skills in their chosen foreign languages but also acquire knowledge about multiple cultures, ideas, literary works, and interpersonal soft skills.

In so doing, students will achieve cultural awareness and understanding, together with the mediating expertise required to navigate the challenges of a multilingual and diverse world.

 

Structure of the FLC Concentration:

In addition to the two required courses, FLC students must choose to study one language in depth (L1 – 44 credits) and need to take all eleven level courses (or 10 levels if students have basic knowledge in the chosen language) consecutively, starting in their first trimester of study. For this component of the program (L1), FLC students have to be complete beginners or have a proficiency level no higher than Elementary I.

Students also need to take at least two (2) consecutive levels of any other language (L2 – 8 credits) offered by the Foreign Language Program at MUIC. For this component of the program (L2), FLC students who have previous knowledge will take a test and be placed at the appropriate level in order to further their study.

ICIC 452 Independent Project in Humanities and Languages is to be taken in the final year of the program, concurrently with ICIC 451 Senior Writing Seminar.

An external evaluation of their respective language proficiency through an independent evaluation body (Goethe Institute, Alliance Française, DELF-Institute, Hanban, Japanese Institute) is strongly recommended for students in the FLC Concentration.
