Department of Languages

  • A Whole New World of Opportunities

    The Department of Languages prepares students to become informed global citizens by allowing them to explore different world views and concepts through immersion experiences in the classroom, community, and abroad, and fostering an appreciation for the changing and increasingly multi-cultural, multi-ethnic, and multi-lingual living environments. We help students develop and refine their critical and analytical skills, which will allow them to consider a diversity of perspectives and make sound decisions as they embark on their careers.
