There's no doubt that multilingualism has important implications for communication, identity, social and cultural integration, development and education.
With its world-leading expertise in the fields of cognition, society and language the University of Groningen(RUG) now offers a one-year Master's programme in Multilingualism at University Campus Fryslân (UCF) in co-operation with NHL University of Applied Sciences. The MA programme will be launched in September 2013.
To celebrate the launch of this new programme, the conference Multilingualism: The Key Debates will be organised. This conference is organised by the RUG and UCF. The conference will be held on 12 and 13 September in the only officially multilingual province of the Netherlands Fryslân.
