Department of Languages

The Department of Languages is committed to maintaining SSE Riga students’ high level of English while encouraging them to acquire other languages. As advanced English skills are required for admission, English is taught only at the specialisation level. In the first semester of Year 1, students take an intensive mandatory course, Academic English, the aim of which is to cultivate fluency and a clear, concise style in report writing. English is later evaluated on major reports to ensure on-going quality. Throughout their studies, students may furthermore elect to take other languages. The current offerings are Spanish, French, German, Swedish, Latvian and Russian. All are offered at two levels: elementary and intermediate. For more advanced learning in these languages, students are encouraged to apply for an exchange semester in Year 3 and for summer internships in the respective region.
