Welcome to the Department of Languages & Humanities Education

The Department of Languages and Humanities in Education (DLHE) is responsible for teacher formation in these subject areas:  English, French, German, History, Italian, Maltese, Religious Education, Social Studies and Spanish. The department promotes innovative teaching and learning methods and is involved in several initiatives in collaboration with stakeholders. Courses are also offered by departmental staff through which qualified teachers can seek to develop their competences and specialise further. 

Research carried out by DLHE staff has obtained local and international recognition, and includes works on the teaching and learning of DLHE subject areas, on intercultural education, on bilingualism and on assessment, among others. Staff members regularly participate in international projects and collaborate with colleagues from foreign universities. 

While most graduates of DLHE find employment in Education, many of them are active in various sectors of society thereby truly embracing education as a lifelong pursuit which leads to personal growth and fulfilment.
