What will I learn?

On campus living is currently optional, but quarantine seems to have made this year’s freshman class less ready for off campus living. We want to make sure that they have a support system in place, which they will have in the dorms.

The Department of Language and Cultural Studies offers a major in Modern Language with a concentration in French, Japanese, or Spanish as well as a Dual Language Professional Track.

Our program provides you with strong language, cultural, and professional skills and gives you an edge in today’s competitive job market. Through classes, workshops, experiential learning, and a close-knit learning community, you will learn to interpret information derived from a variety of authentic sources, think critically and creatively, and communicate effectively and connect with people from cultures around the world.
