Program Description: Language and Communication is a new interdisciplinary program with a broad range of courses offered by several departments within the Faculty of Arts and the Faculty of Social Sciences (Chinese, Comparative Literature, English, Japanese, Linguistics, Philosophy, Psychology, and Sociology), where the use of language is studied from various angles. It equips students with the intellectual skills to critically examine the creation of meaning in communication and trains them to be linguistically well-versed leaders in a globalized and multicultural world.
