World Languages & Cultures

Proficiency in another language opens doors to opportunities in the liberal arts and many professional fields. Students will also acquire knowledge and skills in global citizenship, diversity and critical thinking with local and worldwide relevance. We offer a wide range of study-abroad opportunties to enhance the learning experience.

Career Opportunities: Proficiency in a second language is an invaluable asset in business, healthcare, government, research, teaching, publishing, translation/interpretation, and the performing arts. Understanding a language and the cultures in which it is spoken is critical to the preservation and growth of our cultural, economic and political ties with other countries.
