A Hungarian native fluent in 6 languages, Varga joined Lynn's staff in 2011 as academic web coordinator and adjunct professor teaching in the Communication and Emerging Media program.

Teaching Philosophy:

Timea Varga believes that learning is an interactive process that takes place both inside and outside of the classroom. Given the dynamic and cross-disciplinary nature of the Dialogues, she trusts that students learn best through an action-based approach that fosters critical thinking and the application of important theoretical frameworks in real-world scenarios.

Varga also believes that Lynn's uniquely diverse environment provides an ideal atmosphere to enrich one's intercultural competence necessary to succeed in an ever-more competitive and increasingly multicultural world. Thus, she relies on her international background and intercultural skills to expose her students to global issues, attitudes, and trends that both directly and indirectly affect their prospective fields and areas of research. Accordingly, in an era, where emerging technologies can act both as catalysts and barriers for personal and professional development, she encourages her students to continuously challenge her, themselves, and each other in order to become seasoned individuals in traditional and digital settings alike.
