Lotta Kokkonen:


With the rapid increase of internationalism throughout the personal, corporate, and public spheres of societies, multilingual communication skills and intercultural awareness and competence are required more and more often at a level which presupposes active, creative and professionally-oriented participation in a variety of socio-cultural contexts both in the home country and abroad. 


The Multilingual Intercultural Competence (MIC) offers degree students at the University of Jyväskylä the chance to invest in the development of their internationalization capabilities and demonstrate their competence. MIC can include studies completed in the form of courses run by the University of Jyväskylä’s Language Centre, for subject departments and as an exchange student, for instance.
