Facilities & Resources

Modern Languages and Literatures offers an exciting array of study away opportunities in Europe and Latin America. Yet one of the most exciting thing about studying foreign languages at Furman is that you don’t have to leave campus to have an enriching cultural experience. We encourage students to Go Beyond classroom learning to explore all the possibilities for using and strengthening their language skills in our Modern Language Center in Furman Hall and our Language Houses in North Village. Our unique facilities can take you beyond the classroom for deeper immersion into the languages we offer all our students.
