Minorities & Multilingualism

Institution Logo University of Groningen

How is #blacklivesmatter a movement to empower (racialized) minorities across the globe? Does the discussion on diversity management ask for new leadership skills? How do global events such as the Covid19 pandemic affect minorities?

Hundreds of languages are spoken throughout the world, many of these by minority groups. In our BA-programme Minorities & Multilingualism you learn about the languages, cultures, histories and politics of ethnolinguistic minorities across the globe.

Language, Culture and Diversity

More than ever, our societies are diverse. Future leaders in education, business, and politics must address this diversity: they need diversity management skills.

Our programme covers courses on linguistics, political and cultural history, and social sciences, including a stay abroad (optional). You will encounter a broad range of topics: globalisation, migration and minorities, diversity management, and multilingualism.

You learn how to investigate, critically reflect, assess, and act upon these topics. You become able to formulate solutions and produce policy advice that helps organisations and communities deal with diversity.


This bachelor offers you the opportunity to directly apply your knowledge to the local context by studying Frisian: you may follow a special Frisian track (60 ECTS) or choose a minor in Frisian (30 ECTS).
