The Department of Language, Culture, and Communication (LCC) at the University of Michigan-Dearborn offers courses and programs in communication, comparative literature, composition, film studies, journalism, linguistics, modern & classical languages (Arabic, Armenian, French, German, Greek, Latin, and Spanish), and speech. These courses and programs offer a basis for the acquisition of knowledge and skills related to the uses and analysis of language in multiple cultural and communicative contexts. Students hone their skills in speaking, writing, and understanding language. They also gain rich lenses for analyzing language in all its forms—from public relations campaigns to globally disseminated films, political speeches to the literature of other cultures, from global popular culture to news reports to the worldwide use and transformation of English. Faculty in LCC are dedicated teacher-scholars, committed educators who are recognized experts in their fields.
