Welcome from our Chair

The department of Modern Languages and Cultural Studies is welcoming its students, continuing, visiting and new to the 2020-2021 academic year!

In MLCS we are proud of excellent enrollments in our courses despite the challenges of the remote learning and teaching environment.

We are confident that all of our students are returning or joining us with a sense of excitement, energy, and enthusiasm.

We are looking forward to seeing familiar and new faces and working with all of you toward a successful academic year. We’d love for you to join us throughout the year at department events and lectures – keep an eye on our website and social media.

Best of luck and success to all of you!
