The Department of Modern Languages seeks to provide students with the skills needed to speak, read, write and comprehend at least one modern language. Graduates develop an appreciation of cultural diversity by understanding the relationship between a language and its respective culture. The Modern Language curriculum equips students with the skills to conduct research and use computer applications in a different language. The program provides a solid foundation for those who wish to pursue a career or graduate studies in a modern language.
Students can choose between six unique experiences to further their knowledge of other languages and cultures. Learn more.

"Our mission is to give our students the opportunity and the challenge to live multilingually. Proficiency in another language affords privileged access to cultures and communities, providing insights and understanding that is so needed in today's world."
