Department of Modern Languages and Literatures
Not only will you deepen and broaden your language and communication skills, but you will also encounter literature, film, and fine arts from some of the world's richest traditions. Language students come away with a powerful understanding of culture, whether you are working on an organic farm in Italy, enjoying a French film, or cooking a meal for the Chinese New Year. Your keen cultural understanding and advanced command of language will set you apart in a world that is increasingly more connected.
As a student in our department, you may choose to travel abroad or immerse yourself in a creative cultural project at home. Our award-winning faculty will help you take full advantage of our comprehensive approach, which allows you to strengthen your liberal arts foundation and prepare for a lifetime of interacting in a diverse world.
