Minorities & Multilingualism


Our graduates understand the complexity of the contemporary world. Uniquely interdisciplinary, our programme integrates knowledge across areas such as culture, language, history, politics, sociology and anthropology. Out of the classroom, in-depth immersion experiences engage students in learning hands-on and in the field. Moreover, by graduation, many of our students display superior-level proficiency in at least one language other than English.

The interdisciplinary knowledge, intercultural fluency, and superior language ability that our students acquire make them invaluable to business and social-impact endeavors that span regions and industries. A degree adds to a diversity manager’s ability to negotiate across dividing lines and navigate cultural differences. Ultimately, the degree drives the success of our alumni in life after university.
