Welcome to the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures! The department contributes to the liberal arts education of all students by helping them to improve their ability to communicate with and understand other cultures in an increasingly interdependent world. The study of foreign languages provides students with additional basic knowledge of their own language, allows them to escape a narrow, monolingual view of the world, and offers them the opportunity to develop proficiency in a second or third language.

The department offers a major in Foreign Languages and Literature with concentrations in French, German, Russian, and Spanish. This new major requires that students complete nine credits in a study-abroad program. Qualified majors will receive aid to help them fulfill this requirement (see Grants and Scholarships). Minors are also available in those four languages.

The Department also offers courses in Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese and Modern Greek under the NASILP program, as well as Latin and Classical Greek (starting Spring 2008) in the regular curriculum. A complete listing of requirements and course descriptions for all classes can be found in the University Bulletin. You may also consult the schedule of courses for the current or upcoming semesters.

Although the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures has no graduate degree program, graduate-level course work at the 500 level is offered in several languages. Students may enroll in the Alternative Masters program in the College of Education with a specialization in a Foreign Language. For information about this program, please contact the head of the appropriate language section in the Department of Foreign Languages.
