Distribution courses from the Center for Languages and Intercultural Communication (CLIC) are broad in theme and scope. Students in these courses will develop increased intercultural and interactional competence, which includes a critical understanding of the sociolinguistic and sociocultural aspects shared by the community of users of the target language. These courses encourage students to probe the modes of knowledge and inquiry characteristic of the humanities. A central component of these courses is the development of students' critical thinking and analytical abilities. This is accomplished through the analysis of spoken and written interactions which allows students to understand linguistic forms, uses of vocabulary, varieties of intonation, social situations and their effects on language use, and language behavior in different situations. The ultimate goals are to question students' own sociolinguistic and sociocultural norms and give them the tools to appropriately engage with the target language communities. These courses will also provide students with the essential knowledge and tools for thinking critically history and culture, and for understanding the centrality of such capacity to informed participation in social, political, and professional life since it is precisely through understanding the language of history and culture that students can understand these.

Opportunities for the Certificate in Language and Intercultural Communication Japanese.
