Faculty of Language and Communication

Welcome to Faculty of Language and Communication (FLC). The faculty offers academic programmes related to linguistics, language studies and communication studies. It also serves as the one-stop-centre for the learning of Bahasa Melayu, English language, foreign language (e.g. French, Japanese, Mandarin) and borneo language (e.g. Iban, Bidayuh and Melanau) courses. In addition, we also offer beginner level courses to cater the needs of international students, staff and also the public. The faculty has been instrumental in introducing our students to other languages and cultures through the third language courses offered under the university elective programme.

The Faculty

Know Us Better...

Since 1998, the Faculty has grown bigger in human resources. As of now, there are 58 academicians & researchers, with 35 supporting staffs to strengthen the Faculty's core business and services. Without these people, the Faculty could not achieve what you see today.
