Department of Modern Languages

The Department of Modern Languages provides an important facet of the liberal education of all students by offering a variety of courses in French, German, Spanish, Japanese, and the cultures and literatures of those countries where these languages are spoken. These courses increase the cultural and linguistic awareness of students, help them fulfill the University Studies and B.A. requirements, and prepare them for language examinations in graduate school. Modern language courses develop skills and provide information and experience that help prepare students for citizenship in a rapidly changing world.


Students who have previously studied a language (in high school or abroad) may receive up to 12 hours of college credit for their knowledge and begin at a more appropriate level, saving time and money. For more information, please see the placement policy.
