The Modern Languages and Literatures department is diverse, yet united in its mission to inspire you in your discovery of foreign language and culture at Furman. Our instructors' interests range from Chilean poetry to post-war German literature and from Chinese cinema to anthropology. Among our faculty are 24 tenure-track professors who have proven their long-term commitment to teaching language. Many faculty members have earned special recognition, and all have an in-depth understanding of their subject and a passion for helping students gain fluency in a non-native language and culture.
