What will I learn?

Wichita State’s Bachelor of Arts (BA) in MCLL bilingual option allows you to increase your fluency in two languages as you complete your degree.

You’ll have access to study-abroad opportunities, informal conversation groups and the Music and Languages Innovation Center’s vast resources. And you’ll be well prepared to pursue an advanced degree and to apply your language abilities in a variety of careers.


The major consists of 33 credit hours divided between your two chosen languages, consisting of 12 hours of each language beyond FREN210, GERM210, LATN112, RUSS210 or SPAN 210 in addition to other requirements and electives.

Applied Learning

Students in the BA in modern and classical languages/bilingual option are required to complete an applied learning or research experience to graduate from the program. The requirement can be met by successfully completing MCLL 351 Linguistics and Foreign Languages, which involves an applied component such as sociolinguistics or semiotics, a discipline that involves applied linguistics.


A language degree from Wichita State will give you the knowledge and skills to pursue graduate studies and opens doors to careers at home and abroad.
