We are committed to engaging the diversity within and among languages and cultures, as well as the multilingual practices among language learners as resources for learning. Our program cultivates a global perspective and offers students the opportunity to directly experience languages, cultures, teaching, and learning in settings across the world. We prepare educators to critically engage with the contextual nature of language teaching in diverse settings within and beyond schools.
