The Linguistics Department at Georgetown University would like to announce

Communication (MLC) program will be considered until June 15th, 2008.
This program is uniquely designed to find professional applications for the
study of language and communication.

The MLC features an individualized curriculum that develops skills in
sociolinguistics, discourse analysis, and pragmatics, which can be applied
in fields such as human resources, international communication, diversity

MLC students participate in professional socialization events and career

development is designed to enable students to articulate how their skills
