In the NSU Global Language and Culture program, you'll be provided with skills and experiences to communicate effectively in global contexts across various cultural settings. This contextualized learning of languages and culture prepares you to take on a wide variety of professional roles in areas including international business/banking, technology services, immigration services, international student programs, hospitality services, health care services, and embassy support.
This program, offered in person or online, explores research across the curriculum, including sociology, business, history, government, cultural and communication studies, and modern language to offer you a vibrant and accessible curriculum to keep up with current global trends and market needs, allowing you to become effective participants in a global community.
This is not a language program but rather a global cultural studies program that incorporates the practical use of language in a global context. As a major in this program, you will choose one language as your concentration: Chinese, German or Spanish.
A B.A. in Global Language and Culture supplements minors in multiple areas including international business, international studies, sociology, English, communication studies, government, public relations and public history.
Many courses offered in this program double count between majors, which opens the opportunity for you to add a B.A. in Global Language and Culture as a second major. Labs are only required for majors within the program, which opens the opportunity for non-majors to enroll in any non-lab GLC prefix course and have it count toward the 300 level and above credit requirements that must be fulfilled by majors in all programs.
