Student Experiences

We equip students to be fluent in literature, film, and culture, not just foreign languages. Through our program, you will learn to interpret, critique, and connect powerfully in English, as well as in your concentrated language, whether your focus is French, German, or Spanish. Our courses emphasize the development of strong written and oral communication skills, the critical examination of written and visual cultural artifacts, and persuasive argumentation.
