Academic Programs for Intercultural Studies


Many universities have advanced degrees that focus specifically on area studies, international relations, and languages. Fewer have programs in intercultural communication or second languages and cultures. Thus, students who want second language learning and culture learning included in their degree curriculum often have to fashion their own degree program. Below is a list of universities, colleges, and institutions that offer degree programs related to language and/or culture, or that have flexible programs available so students can create their own program of studies.
