World Languages Index

The study of modern languages cultivates unique intellectual skills and exposes students to peoples and aspects of cultures that enhance appreciation of the world of which we are a part. Today, the globalization of the economy and the diversification of our societies have made the knowledge of foreign languages indispensable. Our courses advance learning of high-level synthetic and analytical thinking, enhance the ability to communicate, and promote an understanding of other cultures from within those cultures. Foreign languages are a springboard from which students can enrich their current studies, research, and future careers.
