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 they represent!
Our course offerings are rich and varied, and there are opportunities to study abroad, participate in service-learning in local and international communities, and to get involved in numerous co-curricular activities. Our department features some of the most skilled teaching faculty on campus. Much of our research is aimed at the acquisition of additional languages and enhanced learning through technology and through literary and cultural studies. The Department of Modern Languages offers students of every discipline a wide range of opportunities to engage with world languages and cultures. Join us!
We extend a warm welcome to our new graduate students.
