WDepa​rtment of Languages & Cultural Studies

 

“And they were filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in different tongues, as the Spirit enabled them to proclaim.” - Acts 2:4

 

HandsThe Department of Languages & Cultural Studies (DLCS) provides students with the language skills (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) and the intercultural understandings that they will need to communicate with confidence and to think critically and creatively as citizens in a multicultural society.     

 

The DLCS offers an integrated and interdisciplinary learning and teaching model across several distinct, but related curricular areas, including, French as a Second Language, Classical Studies and International Languages, Interdisciplinary Studies and First Nations, Métis and Inuit Studies.

 

Today’s students are living in an international community where language is our principle means of communication.  The DLCS plays an integral role in promoting multilingual proficiency and intercultural understanding to prepare students for life and work in a global market.  Through learning a second and third language, our students gain a distinct advantage in a number of careers, both in Canada and internationally. 

  

The DLCS is equally committed to providing enrichment opportunities, including: an enriched academic program, interdisciplinary studies courses, local/international field trips, provincial language contests, cultural events and activities.
