Modern Languages Department



      If you are never going to . . .

  • leave the US
  • work for an international company
  • need to communicate accurately in your own language and understand its structure
  • make friends with someone from another culture
  • watch a foreign movie or listen to foreign music
      ... then you do not need to learn a foreign language.



Our language experts in French, German, and Spanish and our small classes will get you on your way to language and cultural proficiency.


Knowing languages strengthens other programs, including


  • Business
  • Education
  • The Arts
  • Social Sciences

It's a must for graduate study.


Build on what you already know or start from scratch.


We have study abroad and internships in every language.
