Overview

The importance of critical languages in the contemporary and future world economies and the international sphere cannot be emphasized enough. Critical languages are important in fields as diverse as intercultural communication, international law and commerce, international relations, and the internationalization of the Internet.

The Critical Languages and International Studies degree at University of Texas Arlington offers a major with specializations in four language options: Chinese, German, Korean, or Russian, as well as minors in those four languages and in Arabic.

The goal of language study is to develop deep translingual and transcultural competence. In view of these aims, MODL provides a full range of language offerings from beginning to advanced courses in a variety of world languages. In addition to development in the four basic language skills -- speaking, listening, reading, and writing -- a major aim is to gain understanding of the diversity of human culture as represented in several of the world's languages, literatures, and other cultural media.
