New major in Languages, Literatures and Cultures

The Department of Languages, Literatures is pleased to announce a new LLCU major * starting September 2017. Any students wishing to pursue it can choose the new major during the Plan Selection period in May through SOLUS.

The world can seem like a big place, but through the LLCU major, students will get a glimpse into how small and connected it really is and be able to engage with intercultural sensitivity and a palette of relevant skills. Through this program, students can learn a minimum of two languages from over 14 languages taught at Queen's, understanding not only their linguistic structures but the cultures in which they are formed. Learning another language provides students with the ability to step inside the mind and context of that culture and to better understand their own.

The new LLCU major allows students to learn languages and develop an understanding of literary and cultural traditions. The program is designed to be an excellent platform for study abroad opportunities and for students to gain additional experiential learning. The major's goal is to provide students with a set of diverse and flexible core competencies, supporting solid and practical foundation for a remarkably wide range of post-graduate careers, graduate degree options, and professional programs.

For more information such as Plan structure and option courses, please visit LLCU major page or contact the Department at llcu@queensu.ca

*Prospective students are advised that offers of admission (or Plan selection) to a new program may be made only after the University’s own quality assurance processes have been completed and the Ontario Universities Council on Quality Assurance has approved the program. For the LLCU program this is anticipated to occur prior to May 18th, 2017.
