WHO WE ARE
The UACS School of Foreign Languages offers an exceptional academic curriculum that enables our students to acquire unique knowledge, develop outstanding language and literacy skills, and gain valuable experience.
Designed to meet the needs of the language professionals, students at our School are introduced to modern methodology in teaching English language and literature. They learn to use the well-proven teaching techniques and methods and adapt the less-favored ones to their own needs, while being trained to successfully manage various classroom experiences in their future career.
Our students are also taught the most contemporary techniques for translating written documents. As the translation courses are designed to provide both theoretical knowledge and practical ability to analyze language, text, discourse and culture, the business communication part prepares them for the challenges of business dealings in the era of globalization.
Those graduates who love literature and are fond of reading and writing will benefit from our Creative Writing program, which is carefully designed to help them clearly express their feelings and freely voice their thoughts.
WHAT WE STAND FOR
We believe in teaching a foreign language in diverse multicultural environments, with different groups and at different levels in a socially responsible manner. Our teaching staff is accustomed to using and teaching computer assisting tools, as well as a translation software with greater speed and efficiency.
UACS SFL teaches the students to collect, analyze, compare and evaluate data for the purpose of making different types of translation. We are dedicated to developing the ability for business communication, effective communication in teams, as well as gaining skills for presenting and communicating in English language in a multicultural environment. We offer an exceptional mix of the best European and American practices in terms of education and we involve our students in international research projects and activities.
The UACS SFL students are encouraged to take part in the Erasmus+ European Mobility Program and spend a study semester at one of our partner universities in Europe. They are also encouraged to take part in CEEPUS (Central European Exchange Program for University Studies) to spend a month at a university in the CEEPUS member states.
