Course Description

The globalisation of the economy and culture means that knowledge of a language is more and more in demand. Learning a second language will develop and improve your communication skills and give you a greater understanding of a different country and its culture. Studying a language makes you more employable and will prepare you to work in a multicultural and globalised economy.

In the core subjects you will learn to understand and speak a language in social situations, and you will acquire an understanding of the cultural heritage, history and contemporary society of another country. The Diploma in Languages can be studied by itself or concurrently with another UOW degree, if studied concurrently, you would take one language subject per session, along with the other subjects from your degree. At the completion of your studies at UOW, you will graduate with two awards, your degree and the Diploma in Languages.
