Global, Cultural and Language Studies
The Department of Global, Cultural and Language Studies' focus is European and European Union Studies and Asian Studies, studied from contemporary political, social, cultural and language perspectives. The department collaborates with China and Europe; engages with business or community groups that wish to reach out to Asia and Europe; and provides teaching in international competence.
The department works innovatively to equip graduates for careers in some of the major continents and societies of the globalised world in ways that ensure relationships are strengthened and mutual benefit, respect and understanding are established.
