Understanding Our World through Languages


Global Citizenship starts here at the Department of Modern Languages and Literatures. The department offers courses in the key languages of the world, including Arabic, Chinese, French, Japanese, German, Russian, and Spanish.

The study of the languages. literatures, and cultures of the world prepares students for the challenges of an interconnected world. Through our diverse course offerings, students learn valuable communicative and intercultural skills, become strong writers, and develop the critical thinking and analytical skills needed to succeed in today's global community.

Through the Office of International Programs, students can pursue language study abroad in our semester and summer programs in China, France, Germany, Japan, and Spain.
