A minor in Modern Languages, Linguistics and Intercultural Communication (MLLI) allows students to develop proficiency in a foreign language, to learn about the nature of language and to become familiar with the societies in which different languages are spoken. A minor in MLLI will assist students in developing communication skills and in understanding the complexities of an increasingly interdependent, multilingual and multicultural world. It will enrich students’ learning experience and enhance their career potential.
