University of Limerick – Ollscoil Luimnigh – MLAL


The School of Modern Languages and Applied Linguistics (MLAL), part of the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at the University of Limerick, engages in teaching and research across a wide range of subjects whose common concern is the acquisition, analysis and interpretation of a range of languages and their associated cultures.

Composed of French, German, Japanese, Spanish, and TESOL sections, the School is also home to three dynamic research centres: the Centre for Applied Language Studies (CALS), the Centre for Irish-German Studies, and the Ralahine Centre for Utopian Studies.

The School of MLAL, was created in September 2014, after the division of UL’s  School of Languages, Literature, Culture and Communication (known, prior to 2009 as the Department of Languages and Cultural Studies), and it seeks to advance the University’s established reputation for excellence in teaching, learning and research in linguistic, literary and cultural areas.
