Welcome to the Department of Modern Languages
Come experience both the intellectual and personal enrichment that comes with learning new languages—Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Russian, and Spanish—and encountering the diverse cultures that they represent! Our course offerings at all levels are rich and varied, and there are opportunities for study abroad, service-learning in local and international communities, and numerous co-curricular activities. Our department features some of the most skilled teaching faculty on campus, and much of the department's research is aimed at acquisition of additional languages, and enhanced learning through literary and cultural studies as well as technology. The Department of Modern Languages offers students of every discipline a wide range of possibilities to engage with world languages and cultures.
