The departments of Modern Languages and Literatures and History and Philosophy at Montana State University are co-sponsoring a workshop that will focus on the impact of international studies on education and cultural competence set for 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 6, at the MSU Student Union Building.

The workshop will provide a forum about the changing nature of academic disciplines, foreign language skills and cultural competence in the 21st century. Two sessions are planned. The first is on internationalizing disciplines and crossing colleges. The second is on area studies and regional knowledge. Discussion will follow.

A variety of academic disciplines will be represented, including: political science, sociology and anthropology, plant sciences, business, modern languages and literatures, history and philosophy and English.

This workshop is funded through a Title VI Department of Education grant through the Undergraduate International Studies and Foreign Language Program.
