As MIT students pursue an expanding spectrum of international engagements, Global Languages classes and immersive international experiences help prepare them to live and work in the diverse and multilingual context of a globalizing world. Through our curriculum, students develop communicative and intercultural competencies, critical thinking skills, intellectual curiosity, diversity awareness and cross-cultural understanding.
