Conferences & Publications

MLAS students are strongly encouraged to participate in professional academic conferences both to fulfill the University’s degree requirement of “Oral Competency,” and to experience the intellectual growth such activities provide. Similarly, we encourage students to participate in community-related activities and Study Abroad opportunities related to their academic program.

Opportunities open to MLAS students will be posted here. If you know of such an opportunity to advertise here, please email the office.
