The College of Languages was established in 2009. The College comprises two departments, namely the Department of Kurdish Language and the Department of English Language. The Department of Kurdish Language offers a four- year programme leading to B.A. degree in Kurdish language and literature, whereas the Department of English language offers a four- year programme leading to B.A. degree in English language and literature. The Centre for Languages and Translation has been recently founded to run language proficiency courses in English, Arabic and Kurdish and provide translation services.
