The article traces the interrelation of human sciences, culture and language, which is the unifying field of the humanities milieu. A foreign language is considered in the context of interdisciplinary connections, when studying of humanities facilitates foreign-language training.

The concepts of "culture" and "language" are inseparable, and their interrelations have been discussed by linguistic scholars for many decades. The XXI century is characterized by the diversity of world cultures and the multilingualism of the world, therefore a modern professional should act as a linguistic personality capable of conducting a successful dialogue with foreign partners, taking into account their culture and traditions.

Professional activities within human sciences are aimed at interpersonal relationships, so the skills necessary for a future professional in the human science sphere are to communicate effectively with people, including such personal qualities, the development of which is facilitated by teaching a foreign language. Foreign language training of future professionals in humanities in the process of studying human sciences can provide the foundations for a new cultural, educational and social thinking. The human sciences educational milieu is a cultural and educational area with a priority of humanistic and moral values. Humanities contribute to the creation of a humanities educational environment, an environment that is able of not only translating knowledge, but growing an individual who can create such knowledge.

The most important characteristic of humanities educational milieu, which primarily relates to the concentrated content of education in it, is integrativity. It is this property, objectively inherent in the phenomena of the human world, which should become the determining factor in the construction of the educational process, and, therefore, characterize the educational environment. An essential feature of the humanities educational milieu of a higher educational institution is the universality of the education received. This property is due, firstly, to the specifics of University education. For positive results in foreign language training in the professional human sciences sphere, consideration of interdisciplinary links helps to reveal the specificity of foreign language learning of future professionals in humanities.
