About us


Slogan: "Come as a student,  leave as a master"

Since April 16, 1998, the Faculty of Foreign Languages (FFL) has made far-reaching changes, contributing to the sustainable development of Ton Duc Thang University. 

Currently, FFL offers four different Bachelor’s (BA) and Master’s (MA) study programs. The three majors, English Language, Chinese Language in four years, and Chinese-English Language in five years enhance effective use of the most widely used languages in the world for undergraduates. 

Moreover, for English students in the pursuit of academic excellence, our MA in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL 4+1) can be an ideal option. Students are instructed to utilize a comprehensive approach to their pursuits by using a mix of research and experimental learning. Especially, they can complete the master’s program within the span of only one year because some modules are integrated into the four year BA program in English Language. 

FFL is one of the largest and most prestigious departments at TDTU, attracting thousands of students thanks to its reasonable and scientific curriculum, focusing on various sets of skills, practice, and career orientation. 

Besides reinforcing students’ language skills, linguistics, and theoretical comprehension regarding literature, culture and specialized knowledge in teaching English or business, students have plenty of opportunities to undertake internships at relevant domestic and international organizations.
