This QEP focuses on the belief that the success and competitiveness of Mason students in an increasingly global economy relies upon available opportunities for enhanced foreign language acquisition.

  • All students at Mason, regardless of degree program, will gain a competitive edge in the job market by obtaining increased language proficiency through better classroom instruction, variety of languages offered, and language immersion abroad.
  • Offering a wider variety of languages, and at higher levels of proficiency, would address the student body’s growing demand for global competency in both language and cultural awareness.
