UTP Stage II: Language and Intercultural Relations


A Bachelor of Arts in Language and Intercultural Relations (LIR) enables students to acquire the skills necessary to navigate culturally diverse working and social environments. Intercultural relations professionals are strategic relationship builders who work with individuals, corporations, government and NGOs to help all parties communicate in a way that bridges cultures and lifts barriers of language. There has never been a more important era for intercultural relations professionals, as globalization and increased migration have brought people from a variety of backgrounds closer together and in more frequent contact.
