The Program in Global Languages & Cultures (GLC) is a dynamic and multifaceted unit housed in the UC Irvine School of Humanities. GLC is home to the Global Cultures major and minor. We also offer courses in a range of languages (Arabic, Persian, Vietnamese) along with graduate and undergraduate courses in academic English for multilingual students. Our courses for graduate students in academic English include introduction to graduate writing, thesis/dissertation writing, writing for scholarly publication, along with courses in oral communication. We also offer a range of academic English undergraduate courses in academic writing and reading/vocabulary. The Program also provides international graduate students who plan to become teaching assistants with an assessment program and support tutorials.

Our main program office is located in the Humanities Instructional Building (HIB), room 335. Some of our administrative staff are also located in HIB 443.
