Whether acting globally or locally, problem-solvers work with teams from a wide range of linguistic and cultural backgrounds.
Middlebury equips youth, undergraduates, masters and doctoral students, and working professionals to succeed—not only with language proficiency in 14 languages, but also with dispositions towards cultural difference, skills for clear and charitable communication, and key questions to ask when engaging interculturally.
Middlebury builds intercultural and multilingual fluency in a variety of settings: from neighborhood service-learning sites to distant cities and villages; from one-week experiential learning projects to academic years abroad; within campus classes in a wide range of majors, during intensive immersive summers under the Language Pledge, through world-class professional graduate programs, and study abroad programs.
